The vaccines are free and available to anyone aged 12 years old or older -- though children under the age of 18 are required to have consent from a parent or guardian to receive the Pfizer vaccine. Those who receive the first shot of a Pfizer vaccine at the clinic can schedule an appointment for the second dose at a Meijer store, officials said.

Parking for the pop-up clinic can be validated at the Fox Theatre Garage.
