(La Porte, IN) - The number of people receiving COVID-19 vaccinations in La Porte County has diminished but still pretty steady.
Since January, the La Porte County Health Department has operated a vaccination clinic at the fairgrounds. Nurse Peggy Rose said 425 people, on average, were once coming in daily for their vaccination but the number has dropped to slightly more than 200 people per day recently.
Rose said anyone 16 and over from any state can be vaccinated at the clinic. All people have to do is bring some form of identification to allow accurate records to be kept on who has been vaccinated. She said individuals are also given cards showing they’ve been vaccinated should they ever have to show proof of vaccination.
The clinic is open every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Walk-ins are also accepted. Rose said the clinic will be moving to the old La Porte Hospital site on May 26 to make way for preparing for this year’s La Porte County Fair.
