It's Our ShotThe Indiana Department of Health announced Tuesday that it has partnered with the University of Notre Dame to host a mass vaccination clinic to help eligible Hoosiers receive a free COVID-19 vaccine.

In addition, effective Tuesday, Hoosiers age 55 and older are now eligible to receive a free vaccine.
“Getting tens of thousands of vaccines in arms in a matter of days is a huge undertaking that requires incredible partnerships,” Governor Eric J. Holcomb said. “We are incredibly grateful to Notre Dame for their willingness to meet this challenge head-on to help save Hoosier lives.”

The mass vaccination clinic will offer the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which received its Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA on Saturday. The vaccine requires only one dose and has been shown to be safe and effective at preventing hospitalizations and deaths in clinical trials involving nearly 44,000 participants from all races and ethnicities.

“The Johnson & Johnson vaccine gives eligible Hoosiers a safe, effective and convenient way to protect themselves from COVID-19,” said State Health Commissioner Kris Box, M.D., FACOG. “Because it requires just one dose, every shot administered represents a Hoosier who can rest easier, knowing their risk of severe illness from this disease has dropped exponentially.”

The Indiana Department of Health has also begun planning for a future mass vaccination sites in other locations as more vaccine becomes available.

All clinic will require advance registration through or by calling 211. Proof of age and residency will be required. The mass vaccination clinic is listed when making an appointment. No walk-ups will be permitted.

The clinic schedule at the University of Notre Dame will be held in the Compton Family Ice Arena on March 26-27 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
