State conducting COVID-19 vaccination, testing clinic today in Seymour

The Indiana State Department of Health has set up a vaccination clinic from 1 to 5 p.m. today at the Indiana Department of Transportation Seymour District Office, 185 Agrico Lane, Seymour.

No appointment is necessary, and there’s no cost. Testing also will be available for free.

Submit your insurance information if you have it because clinics can charge an administration fee to your insurance.

This site will offer PCR and BinaxNOW rapid antigen tests. Testing for children ages 6 months to 2 years old is available with parental assistance.

If you live with another person who also is eligible to receive the vaccine (anyone 12 and older), you will need to schedule two separate appointments.

Individuals ages 12 to 17 must receive the Pfizer vaccine. An adult must accompany children ages 12 to 15 to the vaccine appointment. If the adult present is not the parent or guardian, consent must be submitted in advance.

For anyone age 16 or 17, it’s preferred that a parent or guardian accompany the minor to the vaccination site. If that’s not possible, the parent or guardian can provide written or verbal authorization.

If you are 18 or older, you may choose to receive either the single-dose Johnson and Johnson (Janssen) or Pfizer vaccine, which requires a second dose to be fully protected. This will be scheduled at the time of your first dose.

IU Health offers free rides to any vaccine site in the state. If you need transportation to your vaccine appointment anywhere in the state, call 888-484-3258 and choose option 9.
