The Cincinnati Public Library system is usually an indispensable resource for Queen City residents, but that has become even more true during the pandemic. 

In September, the library began carrying free at-home rapid COVID tests at certain branches. And this month, different locations are offering free COVID vaccinations.

In partnership with Hamilton County Public Health, these branches are offering Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna vaccines on the following dates and times:

Hamilton County Public Health says no appointments are necessary and vaccines are free. Also, those receiving their first dose of the vaccine can get a $100 Visa gift card (with a photo ID) while supplies last. On their website, the health department says, "If we do not have a card at the time of vaccination, one will be sent to you as soon as possible."

Booster shots of all three primary vaccines — Pfizer, Moderna and J&J — have also now been recommended by the FDA for certain at-risk populations.

In addition to vaccines, the Anderson Township branch of the Cincinnati Public Library is offering free COVID testing on Wednesdays. Get details at Insurance is not required and you will not be asked about your immigration status.
