FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — Ivy Tech campuses across the state hosted COVID-19 vaccination clinics Thursday, including Fort Wayne’s Coliseum Campus.
Each campus had at least 100 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine available for students, staff or the general public.
Anyone who did get vaccinated at Thursday's clinic is eligible to enter a raffle for a new laptop.
Ivy Tech says it’s important for everyone in the community to get vaccinated to help those who aren’t able to.
“We are more than just a college to our students and to our community. We are a community meeting space and a place where they access the services they need beyond their learning," said Marketing Director Aja Michael-Keller. "So we know that the more we can make it convenient for them in a place where they feel comfortable, a place that is home to them, then we want to make that available for them.”
Ivy Tech is not requiring students or staff to be vaccinated for this upcoming fall semester, but they are encouraging the community to get their shots.
