TIPPECANOE and CLINTON COUNTIES, Ind. (WLFI) — Local vaccine clinics are rolling out pop-up and drive-thru sites as they expand their vaccination efforts.

As News 18 previously reported, the Tippecanoe County Health Department recently hosted a drive-thru clinic. IU Health Arnett and the Clinton County Health Department are also hosting pop-up clinics this weekend.

CCHD Administrator Rodney Wann says the pop-up clinic will accept walk-in appointments in an effort to combat decreasing demand.

"Demand is starting to fall off now that we're getting to these younger age groups and we are also still seeing a little bit of barriers for folks being able to try to get an appointment," Wann says. "It's not always the easiest thing to do if you don't have internet access or perhaps you don't speak English really well."

Wann says the health department will have administered 10,000 doses by the end of week.

"We're still all in a race against the variants and the spread of those, so any mass clinics are aimed at trying to step up and get more shots in the arms ahead of time," he says.

Clinton County's pop-up clinic will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Clinton County fairgrounds, 1701 S. Jackson St. in Frankfort.

IU Health Arnett's pop-up clinic will take place from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, as well as April 24-25.

Anyone interested in scheduling an appointment should call 211 or visit ourshot.in.gov. The Clinton County pop-up clinic is also accepting walk-in appointments.
