The Allen County Public Library is hosting a series of Flu and COVID-19 vaccination clinics in September and October. As the community approaches cold and flu season, both entities are dedicated to ensuring Allen County residents have access to vaccines that mitigate the impact of illness on individuals and the community at large. This is the second year ACPL and Super Shot have partnered to provide this service.
“The ACPL is pleased to once again partner with Super Shot and provide a venue where the community can quickly and easily access their Flu shots or COVID-19 boosters for those who seek them,” said ACPL Executive Director Susan Baier. “We’re committed to connecting people to the resources and services they need in an affirming way, whether that be a book or a flu shot.”
Super Shot will be on site at three Fort Wayne ACPL branches offering Flu vaccines for ages 6 months and older and the Pfizer COVID-19 Bivalent booster to patients 12 years and older. A parent or guardian must be present if the patient is under 18 years old. All participants should bring a form of ID and insurance card if they have one. Super Shot requests a $15 administration fee per vaccine for those without insurance, but no one will be turned away for inability to pay.
