The Indianapolis 500 is fast approaching, and IMS is ready to maximize this year's attendance potential, by launching another mass vaccination clinic this April.

Organizers say, the event will be similar to the one hosted in March, but this time with more Hoosiers eligible for the COVID-19 vaccines.

Those receiving the vaccine will simply sign up and then drive to the track.

From there, participants will drive on to the pit area and await their shot without getting out of their vehicles.

The mass vaccine site will be administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, with the hope of giving immunity to 100,000 eligible Hoosiers.

The focus for IMS President Doug Boles is to avoid another fanless 500 this year, but to get there he says, it's important to get Hoosiers healthy.

According to Indiana health care leaders over one million Hoosiers have been vaccinated so far.

We're still waiting on the actual cold front to get here. That should arrive around dawn, bringing mainly light rain. The front may also be responsible for perking up a couple bands of heavier rain and lightning east of Evansville for midday Saturday.
