The city of Fishers opened the doors of its new mass vaccination site Monday.
The building used to be a Marsh grocery store and sat empty for years.
Fishers Health Department Public Health Director Monica Heltz said the site will be able to give up to 1,600 shots a day. Appointments are required. Individuals must also be free of COVID-19 symptoms.
“The appointments are set based on the number of vaccines that are allocated. When more vaccines get allocated, if we have more vaccines come on the market, the appointments will increase,” Heltz said.
Currently, people age 70 and older can get vaccinations in Indiana. Other eligible groups will be added, as more vaccines become available.
