(La Porte County, IN) - La Porte County has scored extra doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, by being prepared.
According to County Commissioner Joe Haney, a recent increase in allotments may have to do with the temporary vaccination clinic locally running smoothly. Haney said, “Our allotment of vaccines are coming in by the week. We were supposed to get 400 for next week. We’ve actually done so well [with execution] that they actually upped our doses to 600. And then just today, because of our efficiency, they allocated another 100 doses, so we’re up to sort of just 700 doses for next week”.
Recent issues for those attempting to schedule vaccinations have been widely reported. Haney indicates those issues locally are the result of limited vaccines and computer software problems at the state level.
Currently the vaccine clinic at the La Porte County Fairgrounds handles about 90 vaccinations per day, but is prepared to vaccinate several times that number.
