That time slot is only for all adults 18 years or older. 

On Sunday, April 11, the clinic's hours will be from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. for youth ages 16 and 17. 

Registration information was directly provided to church patrons and area neighbors. 

Appointments are still available for other members of the community.

Fresh fruits and vegetables including apples, bananas, green peppers, cabbage, onions, white potatoes, carrots, and tomatoes will be provided for free to individuals who receive a vaccine at the clinic.

The Marion County Public Health Department, the National Medical Association, MDwise, and IU Health are hosting the pop-up vaccine clinic in partnership with Light of the World Christian Church, Augusta Christian Church, First Baptist Church - North Indianapolis, Providence A.M.E.
