UC Santa Barbara will be hosting a clinic for children between six-months-old, and 11-years-old Wednesday. It’s open to the public, and no ID’s or insurance is required.

The event will be taking place at UCSB’s Orfalea Family Child Care Center from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.

The federal government recently broadened the authorization of vaccine to all Americans over the age of six-months-old. A second clinic in August will offer children their second dose of the Moderna vaccine.
