Coronavirus

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University officials announced Friday afternoon that this year’s Gold-Blue Spring football game will feature something different: a COVID-19 vaccination clinic.

From Noon until 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 24, the clinic will offer Moderna vaccines to anyone 18 and older.

The shots will be given at Touchdown Terrace. Parking will be available on the east side of the Blue Lot, near Willowdale Road.

The announcement comes on the heels of West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice calling Friday for more younger people to get vaccinated.

The game, which benefits WVU Medicine Children’s Hospital, kicks off at 1:00 p.m.
