In an effort to help combat the COVID-19 Delta variant in Biloxi, Sparklight® is partnering with Singing River Health System to host a community-wide vaccination event on Friday, September 10.

“As the surge in Delta variant cases continues, we want to do all we can to ensure the health and safety of our associates, their families, our customers and the community,” said Sparklight’s Biloxi General Manager Greg Capranica. “Our partnership with Singing River lets us lend a helping hand to our community by providing a free vaccine to those who want one.”

The vaccination event will be held from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Friday, September 10 at the Sparklight office, located at 786 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Both the Pfizer vaccine (for individuals 12 years and older) and the Johnson & Johnson vaccine (for individuals 18 years and older) will be available to attendees for their first dose.

“We at Singing River fully support and highly encourage widespread COVID vaccination for our employees, patients, and the community,” said Stacey Weaver, Industry Relations Liaison of Singing River Health System. “We welcome community events like Sparklight’s on September 10 and are looking forward to providing vaccines to our community.”

Sparklight requires that all attendees wear a mask as they enter the office. The company will have a designated area for participants to stay following their injection for the required 10-minute monitoring. Sparklight will also provide bottled water for attendees.
