In an effort to make the COVID-19 vaccine available to all River City residents, the City of Evansville will be providing a mobile COVID-19 vaccine clinic beginning May 5.

The clinic comes as a collaboration between the Reopen Evansville Task Force, Vanderburgh County Health Department, and the Metropolitan Evansville Transit Service (METS).

Anyone who's at least 16-years-old will be eligible to receive the vaccine through the clinic, and pre-registration isn't required - but anyone who does receive their vaccination will need to receive a second dose after a four-week period.

Vaccinations will be administered by staff with the Vanderburgh County Health Department, who will utilize METS buses as a pop-up vaccination clinic around multiple locations throughout the city.

The METS bus pop-up clinic will be available in the following Evansville locations on certain dates:

  • Feed Evansville Community Food Share at Hartke Pool (201 North Boeke Road)
  • Howell Park (1101 South Barker Avenue)
  • Economy Grocery/Former Ruler Foods (1200 North Fulton Avenue)
  • Main METS Terminal (103 NW Sixth Street)
  • Lawndale METS Transfer Station (950 S. Hebron Avenue)
  • Potter’s Wheel (333 Jefferson Avenue)
  • Simpson’s Grocery (1365 Covert Avenue)

You can view a full schedule for the mobile vaccine clinic below, or on reopenevansville.com.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
