Indiana health officials will be in Evansville on Friday and Saturday hosting a COVID-19 vaccination and testing event at the CK Newsome Center.
On Friday, Oct. 1, and Saturday, Oct. 2, the Indiana State Department of Health's "strike team" will be administering tests and vaccinations at the CK Newsome Center from noon to 8:00 p.m. each day.
During the clinics, the ISDH strike team will be able to test 300 people each day. The Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will also be available to anyone who's looking to get vaccinated against the virus. Both testing and vaccinations will be free to the public.
This comes as the second pop-up clinic at the CK Newsome Center in recent days, with the last clinic being hosted by the state health department held there in late August.
Free COVID-19 testing at the CK Newsome Center had become the norm for nearly an entire year after the pandemic began, but regular testing at the site ended back in June 2021.
The center has been utilized as a testing/vaccination site because of its centralized location in the Evansville/Vanderburgh County area.
You can find the CK Newsome Center at 100 E Walnut St # 1 in Evansville.
