TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Monday marked a big day in Tippecanoe County's fight against COVID-19. The county opened its vaccine clinic to those 80 and older.

County Health Department administrator Khala Hochstedler said they are booked the entire week. They have a total of 1,000 doses to administer, including the 100 doses, they plan on giving out Monday.

Charles and Dixie Berry were the first patients to get vaccinated when the clinic opened, and they have big plans once they get their second dose.

"Celebrate our granddaughter's birthday, said Dixie Berry. "She's counting the days. She's the one that got the appointment for us. She's in Lexington, Kentucky."

Rebecca Harshman took her 86-year-old mother to get vaccinated, and she says she can worry a little less about her mother's health.

"[It's] exciting for her safety," Harshman said. "Just so she can be around my grandkids and all of us, and feel a little bit more comfortable."

The process is expected to take 24 minutes in total. They're asking people to stay in their cars, and they're calling them in one by one.
This is to follow CDC-social distancing guidelines.
