(NOBLESVILLE, Ind.) – Hamilton County will close its mass COVID vaccination clinic a week from Friday.
The Hamilton County Health Department set up shop at the county fairgrounds for six months last year when the vaccine first became available, and reopened the clinic when boosters began in October. Emergency preparedness coordinator Chris Walker says at one point this fall, the clinic was administering 400 shots a day. It’s now averaging a quarter of that. Walker says that leaves a lot of empty space the vaccination drive no longer needs.
The clinic reopened Monday after a four-day shutdown due to the winter storm.
After the February 18 closing, you can still get your shot at the health department’s Noblesville office, or at more than 70 clinics and pharmacies across the county.
79% of Hamilton County residents eligible for the vaccine have gotten it, the highest rate in the state.
