MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Area Technical College will host a free, public COVID-19 vaccine clinic from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 17, on the plaza outside the Student Center on 700 W. State Street.

Officials say that both the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and the Pfizer vaccine will be available for those looking to get vaccinated.
