LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Tippecanoe County Health Department's vaccine clinic will go online Monday with 1,000 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.
This is where county residents age 80 and older will be scheduled for their immunizations.
As News 18 previously reported, Indiana residents 80 years or older are now eligible for vaccines. Previously, only health care workers, long-term care residents and emergency responders were eligible.
Seniors should visit ourshot.in.gov or call 211 beginning Friday morning to make an appointment. From there, they can choose a time slot and verify their demographics. Later, they will receive a confirmation message to their email or cell phone.
Health Department Administrator Khala Hochstedler says seniors must register through the state and must have an appointment.
"We do not have the staff to register you, so please, again, if you have a loved one or family member that fits into the demographics I discussed, please help them register for an appointment or yourself call 211," she says.
Patients will need a photo ID to verify their identity and age. Mask-wearing and social distancing will be enforced at all times at the clinic.
The health department's vaccine clinic is located at 2577 Maple Point Drive next to Pay Less Super Market. Upon arrival, patients should call the phone number posted on the door to check in.
