DULUTH — St. Luke's is holding a pop-up Novavax COVID-19 vaccine clinic from 12-4 p.m. Thursday at St. Luke's Denfeld Medical Clinic.

The clinic is open to anyone age 18 and older who has not gotten their COVID-19 vaccine yet. Appointments can be made by calling 218-249-4200.

It was authorized for emergency use in adults by the Food and Drug Administration in July, and is under review for authorization for use as a booster.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
