FORT WAYNE, IND. – May 20, 2021 – Parkview Health, in partnership with the Renaissance Pointe YMCA and Zeta Eta chapter of Chi Eta Phi nursing sorority, is offering a pop-up COVID-19 vaccine clinic Monday, May 24, at the Renaissance Pointe YMCA, 2323 Bowser Ave., Fort Wayne.
Vaccines will be available 8-11 a.m. and 4-7 p.m. The single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine, approved for adults 18 and older, will be administered.
“As part of our COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan, it’s imperative we bring vaccines to vulnerable and underserved communities to help increase vaccination rates,” said Michelle Charles, vice president, nursing informatics, Parkview Health, who is leading the health system’s COVID-19 vaccine distribution. “As an African American, I know people in our community have reservations about the vaccine or may not have access to a clinic. We are grateful for the Parkview Community Nursing team, and the partnership of the Renaissance Pointe YMCA and Chi Eta Phi so we can make it easier for everyone to get informed about vaccination and get their shot.”
Pre-registration for the clinic is available at the front desk of the Renaissance Pointe YMCA, or by calling 260-447-4567. Walk-ins are welcome, and a YMCA membership isn’t required to come to the clinic.
