DRAFFENVILLE, KY — Mercy Health - Paducah has opened a walk-in care clinic to help people with busy schedules get the care they need as well as COVID-19 vaccines. 

Mercy Health says the J&R Walk-in Care Clinic, located at 34 US Hwy. 68 E, Unit B, in Draffenville, is a great alternative for getting treatment for minor illnesses and injuries when your primary care provider is not available. 

The clinic is also offering a limited number of the single dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccinations for anyone in Kentucky's 1C population (people 60 years of age and older, people 16 years old and older with high risk conditions, and essential workers).

The clinic is opened Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. until noon, and 12:30 p.m. until 5 p.m.

Mercy Health also says the out-of-pocket costs at walk-in clinics are typically lower when compared to visits to urgent care or the emergency department. 

The hospital says walk-in services available without an appointment to Marshall County residents include:

  • Treatment of routine illness for the whole family
  • School physicals 
  • Sports physicals 
  • Work physicals 
  • Rapid tests for strep throat, flu, and RSV
  • Flu and tetanus shots 
  • TB skin tests
  • Laboratory tests 
  • EKGs 
  • Evaluation and treatment of injuries and diagnostics

You will, however, need an appointment to get a COVID-19 vaccine at this clinic.
