(La Porte County, IN) - Walk-ins are now being accepted for COVID-19 vaccinations at the La Porte County Health Department clinic.
Health Department Administrator Amanda Lahners said reservations are still preferred but the door is open to walk-ins because there’s enough supply of the vaccine at this time. “You do not have to have an appointment though it is encouraged,” she said.
The clinic at the La Porte County Fairgrounds is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Lahners said 29-percent of La Porte County residents are now fully vaccinated and the clinic has given more than 22,000 shots since opening a few months ago.
Herd immunity is considered attained when 70-percent or more of a population is vaccinated. “We still have a long ways to go,” she said.
