Valparaiso, IN — HealthLinc and the Economic Development Commission of Michigan City are working together to promote COVID-19 vaccinations to area manufacturing facilities, businesses and organizations. HealthLinc is working in partnership with employers to host a COVID-19 vaccination clinic at their businesses on days and times that work best for their employees.

“We know it can be difficult to take time off of work to get the vaccine. We will administer the J&J vaccine which requires only one shot and will bring the vaccine directly to the workplace.” states Beth Wrobel, HealthLinc CEO.  “We want to do everything possible to make sure the COVID-19 vaccine is accessible to everyone and stop the spread of this virus.”

HealthLinc will administer the J&J vaccine to employees 18 years and older, of interested businesses and organizations. To schedule a vaccine clinic, call Jennifer Wright at 219.872.6200, Ext. 3755, or email her at jwright@healthlincchc.org.
