Beginning today, Indiana residents 70 years old or older will be able to sign up for the COVID-19 vaccination. They may do so through the website OurShot.in.gov or by calling the state’s 2-1-1 telephone assistance service. Vaccinations are free. Please do not call the Health Department to make an appointment.
Vaccinations will be by appointment only; no walk-ups will be accommodated at this time.
La Porte County’s vaccination site is located at the Community Building in the La Porte County Fairgrounds at 2581 West State Road 2, La Porte, IN 46350. Appointment times will vary based on availability.
The call center for 2-1-1 will be open from 8a.m. to 9p.m. CST daily, including weekends. Family members may make appointments for seniors. A photo ID will be asked for at the time of the appointment.
At this time La Porte County will receive the Moderna brand vaccine. An appointment to receive the second dose will be made when you receive the first dose. Recipients will then receive reminder messages leading up to their second dose appointment.
The state will follow that age group with people 60 years old and older and then 50 years old and older. The Indiana Department of Health continuously performs maintenance on their scheduling portal to accommodate the high volume of calls. We thank you in advance for your patience.
