Melissa Morehead-Moore was not able to have the 50th birthday she imagined because of the pandemic.

Instead, she chose to celebrate by bringing a Covid-19 vaccine clinic to a barbershop in her Evansville neighborhood on Thursday afternoon.

"What better to celebrate with the community that I love especially during this time of a pandemic," Morehead-Moore told 44News.

Three nurses with the Vanderburgh County Health Department were on scene to administer doses of the vaccine.

During the clinic, Morehead-Moore and other volunteers gave out birthday goodie bags and other incentives to encourage people to get vaccinated.

VCHD officials say 16 people got vaccinated at the clinic.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
