Richard Good of Schererville was the recipient of the 100,000th vaccination given at Community Hospital’s COVID Vaccine Clinic.
Good, 86, and his wife, Carol, recently visited the clinic for their boosters.
“I think everybody should get this shot,” Good said. “Maybe this virus would go away if everyone was vaccinated.”
Community Healthcare System’s COVID Vaccine Clinics, located at Community Hospital in Munster and Community Stroke & Rehabilitation Center in Crown Point, have administered nearly 140,000 vaccinations.
“This significant milestone highlights Community Healthcare System’s efforts to vaccinate the Northwest Indiana community,” said Elizabeth Clements, director of the healthcare system’s vaccine clinics. “Our vaccine clinics will continue to offer this protection against COVID-19 and encourage everyone eligible to get their shots.”
Vaccinations are currently available for individuals aged 12 and older. Vaccine boosters and additional doses are available for people who meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Indiana Department of Health eligibility guidelines.
People should talk with their healthcare provider about their medical condition and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them. Vaccinations may be scheduled online at ourshot.in.gov.
