CareSource recently partnered with the Indiana Immunization Coalition to host series of Community Immunization Clinics across the Indianapolis area. Participants in the clinic could receive all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended vaccines including COVID-19 and Childhood Wellness vaccinations. In all, over 1,000 vaccines were given to Hoosiers.
“CareSource knows the importance of meeting people where they are for their health care,” said Steve Smitherman, President of CareSource Indiana. “We’re proud to work with strong, community-based organizations to increase our state’s vaccination rates and protect more Hoosiers.”
The Indiana Immunization Coalition aims to reduce the spread of vaccine-preventable diseases through immunization education, advocacy, promotion and statewide collaborative partnerships.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the need for solid vaccine distribution plans for all immunizations,” said Lisa Robertson, Executive Director at Indiana Immunization Coalition. “We’ve found that community located vaccination clinics are essential in improving accessibility and fostering equity. We appreciate partners like CareSource for ensuring that we can continue to host these clinics throughout the state.”
