EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Vaccines were handed out at United Caring Shelter on Wednesday.

The Vanderburgh County Health Department was giving both COVID-19 and Hepatitis A shots.

UCS officials tell 14 News that clinics like these make it easier for clients, since they don’t have to go off site.

“With our population bringing services to them is generally what we try to do as much as possible,” UCS Director of People and Programs Krista Board said. “Because the chance that they are going to use those services are increased if they come here where our guests are.”

Board says due to programs like this one, a lot of the clients they serve have been vaccinated.
