The Augusta Armory will provide a booster shot clinic to anyone who qualifies, starting on Tuesday.
The Armory, located at 179 Western Ave., is the result of an effort by the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the Maine National Guard and the Maine Emergency Management Agency in an effort to make booster shots more accessible, Maine CDC Director Nirav Shah said on Twitter Monday evening.
