On Wednesday, the Commission on Homelessness for Evansville and Vanderburgh County announced its partnership with the Vanderburgh County Health Department (VCHD) and Ascension St. Vincent Evansville to conduct on-site COVID-19 vaccination clinics for area homeless shelters and housing agencies.

300 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is a one-shot vaccine, will be administered throughout the community.

On Thursday, March 18, and Friday, March 19, VCHD will administer 100 vaccine doses to residents and clients of ECHO Housing and its facilities.

Ascension St. Vincent Evansville has allocated 200 doses of the J&J vaccine to the Commission on Homelessness for administration to clients of United Caring Services, the Evansville Rescue Mission, Aurora Inc., the House of Bread and Peace, Ozanam Family Shelter, YWCA Evansville, and Albion Fellows Bacon Center.

Those shots will be administered by a team composed of members from Ascension St. Vincent and from the Commission. The team conducted clinics last week at UCS and Evansville Rescue Mission, and will complete them for the remaining agencies on Friday, March 19.
