The Parke County Health Department is now scheduling appointments to administer COVID-19 vaccine to eligible recipients. The vaccine is available to 1) people age 80 and older 2) licensed and unlicensed healthcare workers and first responders who have face-to-face interactions with patients or infectious material or work in a public-facing position that requires in-person contact. A photo ID, proof of age, or verification of current employment as a healthcare worker or first responder in Indiana will be required.
The Parke County Health Department will be working with EMS to administer the vaccine. We would suggest wearing clothing that allows easy access to the upper arm. We will be administering the Moderna vaccine only, at this time. If someone in the 80 and older population does not have access to a computer or the internet, a family member may register for them. You may also call 211 to register. We will begin vaccinating on Friday, January 15 at the Parke County Fairgrounds.
