IndyGo will host a pop-up vaccination clinic Friday at the Julia Carson Transit Center.

The free Moderna vaccinations will be available for those 18 and older from 8 a.m. to noon and 2 to 6 p.m. No registration is required, and all participants will receive a free 31-day IndyGo paper pass following their vaccination.

This is the second pop-up vaccination clinic to be held at the CTC this year. In July, more than 60 people received vaccinations in four hours.

“After the tremendous success of our last pop-up clinic, we feel like we’ve hit the jackpot with this location at the CTC,” IndyGo President & CEO Inez Evans said in a staement. “We know transportation can be a barrier for many people to get out and get vaccinated, so we’re happy to see people taking advantage of this opportunity to utilize our extensive mobility network to connect to this important service.”

The clinic is a result of a partnership between Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield IndyGo, Shalom Health Care Center, the Marion County Public Health Department, the Indianapolis Public Transportation Foundation and the Indy Chamber.

The health department will continue to host pop-up vaccination clinics at the CTC every Wednesday in September from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. All three vaccines will be available, including the Moderna and Johnson and Johnson vaccines for anyone 18 years and older, and the Pfizer vaccine for anyone 16 years and older.

IndyGo’s future headquarters, 9503 E. 33rd St., is also open for free vaccinations Tuesdays through Saturdays in partnership with the health department. Information on hours and scheduling an appointment is available here
