The Indiana Dept. of Health will host a free mobile vaccination clinic Saturday from 2 to 10 p.m. at the Palmyra Fish Fry at Buffalo Trace Park as part of its ongoing efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

A free boat rental certificate, for use at Buffalo Trace Park, will be given by the Harrison County Parks Dept. to individuals who receive their vaccine during Saturday’s event.

Registration to receive a vaccine on Saturday can be completed online by visiting ourshot.in.gov or calling 211 (866-211-9966). Appointments are encouraged, but walk-ins will be accepted while vaccine supplies last.

“This mobile vaccination site is one more way we are working to give all Hoosiers convenient access to COVID-19 vaccine in their communities,” said Dr. Kris Box, state health commissioner. “I encourage everyone who hasn’t been vaccinated yet to take advantage of this safe, effective vaccine, which is the best protection we have against this virus.”

Persons 18 or older may choose to receive either the single-dose Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) or Pfizer vaccine, which requires a second dose to be fully protected.

Individuals age 12 to 17 must receive the Pfizer vaccine. An adult must accompany children age 12 to 15 to the vaccine appointment. If the adult present is not the parent or guardian, consent must be submitted in advance. For anyone ages 16 and 17, it’s preferred that a parent or guardian accompany them to the vaccination site.

Officials with the Harrison County Health Dept. said they are grateful for the partnership with the Indiana Dept. of Health and Harrison County Parks Dept. to offer COVID-19 vaccines to the community.
