(NOBLESVILLE, JANUARY 29, 2021)
The Hamilton County Health Department will move its current vaccine clinic into a larger building on Monday, February 1st. Originally set up at the Annex Building at the 4-H Fairgrounds in Noblesville, the clinic will move to the Exhibition Hall first thing Monday morning.
“The county’s buildings and grounds crew has been working non-stop this week to help get the new clinic set up,” says Christian Walker, emergency preparedness coordinator for the Hamilton County Health Department. “Anyone with an appointment next week, should plan to come to the new facility. New signage will be installed to help get people where they need to go.”
Hamilton County was originally allotted 800 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine per week but expects that number to double by mid-February. The Exhibition Hall offers six times the space of the Annex Building and will allow the Health Department to accommodate up to 3,600 doses per week.
“Moving to this larger space will allow us to scale up quickly once more vaccine becomes available,” Walker says. “Supply is our only hinderance to getting more people vaccinated at this point.”
Shots are administered at the 4-H Fairgrounds from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Currently healthcare providers, first responders and anyone over the age of 70 can register for an appointment at www.ourshot.in.gov. Individuals can also call 2-1-1, AARP, or their local library for registration support.
