West Virginia Health officials announced 14 free vaccination clinics opening this week for West Virginians who are 80-years-old and older.

Hours after announcing the locations, clinics serving the state’s most populous areas reached capacity.

Monongalia and Cabell county locations have no more availability this week, according to the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resource.

In Kanawha County, the local health department is no longer accepting appointments for its Wednesday clinic. However, Cabin Creek Health Systems will begin accepting appointments Wednesday for its clinic on Friday.

The three filled-clinics received more than 1,700 vaccine doses, according to the DHHR. All 14 clinics received 6,300 doses total.

In southern West Virginia, nine counties will have access to a clinic on Thursday at the state fairgrounds in Greenbrier County, where health officials received 500 doses.
