IDAHO — Saint Alphonsus announced Monday it is bringing its Mobile Vaccine Unit to three more communities in June and July. The MVU will provide free COVID-19 vaccines to people in Kuna, Caldwell and Horseshoe Bend starting on June 21.

The MVU will also return to Weiser to administer booster shots of the Pfizer vaccine or the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine upon request. The Pfizer vaccine is approved for anyone age 12 and older, while the J&J vaccine can only be given to patients 18 and older.
