NOBLESVILLE, Ind. — The COVID-19 vaccine clinic at the 4H Fairgrounds in Noblesville will close its operation after Friday, July 2, the health department said Wednesday.
The last day to schedule appointments for first doses at that location will be Monday, June 7. Those who receive their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine as a walk-in client after June 7 will need to schedule their second dose at another Pfizer location.
“Recent numbers of fully vaccinated people in our community and a noticeable decline in future appointments have allowed us to begin scaling down our mass clinic operations,” says Jason LeMaster, administrator for the Hamilton County Health Department.
Additional pop-up community clinics will be scheduled after the Health Department closes the mass vaccination site. Additional site locations, dates, and times will be announced as plans are determined.
“There’s been a big push to demobilize mass clinics across the state and start pushing smaller clinics, taking the vaccine to the where the people are,” LeMaster adds. “Working from our office again will also allow us to get back to our primary role of providing childhood vaccinations alongside the COVID-19 vaccine.”
Walk-ins are welcome at the mass clinic, but appointments can still be made through ourshot.in.gov or by calling 211.
