(La Porte, IN) - There will be an effort to vaccinate a lot of children in La Porte later this week. The city is teaming up with Walgreens on the effort scheduled Thursday at the Civic Auditorium.
Mayor Tom Dermody said kids ages 12 to 18 are eligible to show up for a Pfizer vaccine and pre-registering for a vaccination is preferred but walk-ins will be accepted. “Don’t miss out. We’re calling it Our Shot, Slicers,” he said.
The event will run from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Dermody said the vaccines will be given inside the building and kids after vaccinated will be given a ticket for a free hot dog and pizza slice outside the Civic Auditorium. He said Walgreens is donating over 100 vaccines for the effort.
Parental consent is required for children under 18.
