FHD_Expanded Hours

Fishers Health Department (FHD) announced today that it will offer vaccinations and testing during the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday on Monday, January 17.
 
 “With many schools and businesses closed for the holiday, this is a prime opportunity to complete your first round of vaccinations or get boosted so that you can protect yourself and your loved ones from this latest COVID surge,” said Monica Heltz, public health director for the Fishers Health Department.  
 
 The Fishers Vaccination Clinic (12520 E. 116th Street) will be open 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Monday, January 17 for both walk-ins and appointments. Weekend hours will continue as usual, open Saturday 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and closed on Sunday.  Appointments can be made at fishers.in.us/vaccine. Fishers Health Department has given nearly 90,000 vaccines to date, and more than 9,000 vaccinations in the past 2 weeks as the new omicron variant contributes to rising cases. 
 
 The Fishers Testing Site (3 Municipal Drive) will be open from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. for drive-thru testing, along with priority testing for students and staff of K-12 Fishers-based schools from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. Tests can be scheduled at fishers.in.us/testing. The Fishers Testing Site has administered more than 97,000 tests since opening in April 2020.
 
 For more information on the steps you can take on how to protect yourself and loved ones from the omicron variant, visit fishers.in.us/coronavirus. The FHD continues to support CDC recommendations for protection from COVID that include vaccination, masking up, and avoiding large indoor or poorly ventilated gatherings.
