On Jan. 12, the Fishers Health Dept. announced that it had acquired the former Marsh grocery store at 116th Street and Brooks School Road and plans to convert it into a mass COVID-19 vaccination site. It will be open by the end of this month and can vaccinate up to 1,000 people per day.
The health department also administered its first COVID-19 vaccine Jan. 12.
“We are thrilled to have COVID-19 vaccinations available to our residents beginning (Jan. 12),” Public Health Director Monica Heltz stated. “This vaccine gets us one step closer to controlling the spread of COVID-19 and eventually experiencing some normalcy in our daily lives. I urge each of our residents to get this vaccine and continue to stay vigilant by washing hands, masking up and distancing from those outside your household.”
The Fishers Dept. of Public Works is rehabilitating the mass vaccination site. When operational, it will have registration, vaccination and waiting areas. The site is 48,000 square feet in size.
The Fishers Health Dept. encourages residents to complete the Vaccine Interest Form to assist in notifications for those interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. The health department will utilize information provided in the form to notify those who qualify for the vaccine based on the Indiana Dept. of Health’s priority groups. Residents may complete the optional form at fishers.in.us/vaccine.
