Eskenazi Health Invites Individuals to Receive Free COVID Vaccinations at Eastside Locations

Eskenazi Health will be hosting two free COVID-19 vaccination events on Indianapolis’ eastside of town. The events are for walk-ins with no appointment needed and will offer the one shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Eskenazi Health will provide free vaccinations on Saturday, June 19, at the Avondale Meadows YMCA, at 3908 Meadows Dr., while on Sunday, June 20, free vaccinations will be administered at New Direction Church, at 5330 E. 38th St. Both events are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The vaccines are for anyone 18 and older. Eskenazi Health Center staff will be administering the vaccines.

After you receive a vaccine, you’ll be asked to remain on site for 20 minutes as a precaution to ensure all is well before you head home, and you’ll receive a vaccine card that you’ll want to take a photo of and store in a safe place. That card will provide evidence of vaccination and be a reminder of which vaccine you received. It also will display the dates of your dose or dosages, and list any required follow-up appointments.
