The vaccination clinics will be offering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which was approved for emergency use by the Food and Drug Administration last week and is being shipped across the country.

“Getting tens of thousands of vaccines in arms in a matter of days is a huge undertaking that requires incredible partnerships,” Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb said. “We are incredibly grateful to Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Notre Dame and Ivy Tech for their willingness to meet this challenge head on to help save Hoosier lives.”

Additional mass vaccination sites in other locations will be planned as more vaccine becomes available.
