SPEEDWAY, Ind. — The Indiana State Department of Health and Indianapolis Motor Speedway will make it possible for people to get vaccinated against COVID-19 throughout the month of May.
People who then get vaccinated at the track will get a free T-shirt to commemorate the occasion.
“The Indianapolis Motor Speedway has been an incredibly gracious host throughout our mass vaccination efforts,” said State Health Commissioner Kris Box, M.D., FACOG. “We are grateful for the continued support and for the partnership with Tony and Charlie, who are role models on and off the track.”
The health department also unveiled two new public service announcements featuring NTT INDYCAR SERIES drivers Tony Kanaan and Charlie Kimball, who share their reasons for getting vaccinated.
Vaccinations will be available in the INDYCAR parking lot at 4551 West 16th St., Indianapolis, across from Gate 2, on the following schedule:
- May 10, 17 and 24: Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer vaccines from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

- May 21: Second dose of Pfizer vaccine for individuals who attended family day on April 30.
There will also be three vaccination locations inside the gates for ticketed customers. Vaccinations will be provided at first-aid stations. Customers can enter Gate 1 and Gate 6 daily to receive their vaccination, and Gate 9 will be open all three weekends that the track is open. Customers will be able to get vaccinated on the way to their seats including on Race Day.
