The Vanderburgh County Health Department's mobile vaccine clinic stopped at two locations around Evansville on Tuesday.

Ruler Foods and Simpsons Sueprmarket were the two destinations for the metro bus turned vaccine clinic. With no sign up necessary, several people were able to get their first rounds of the coronavirus vaccine.

"Go ahead, get up, get out and go do it. It's worth it," said Kimberly Andrews, one of the vaccine recipients. 

Other people showed up to receive their third dose of the vaccine. While the clinic is not currently offering third doses to the public, one man seeking his third dose has a message for those hesitant to get their first or second dose. 

"I mean, a mask is very much inconvenient but I don't think it's as inconvenient as a coffin," said Renard Peyton of Evansville.

Indiana residents ages 12 and up are eligible to receive their doses of the vaccine. 

On Wednesday, the VCHD mobile vaccine clinic will be set up at the Grocery Outlet on Fulton Ave.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
