If you are 16 or older you are eligible to be vaccinated.

(Batesville, Ind.) - As many have experienced over the last year, rural communities aren’t beyond COVID-19’s reach. We’ve made significant progress in protecting our community, but there’s still more that needs to be done to end this pandemic. Many people in rural communities are at increased risk for COVID-related severe illness, hospitalization and death because of chronic health conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.

Vaccines are safe, effective and an important tool in ending the COVID-19 pandemic. Margaret Mary Health (MMH) is now providing access to COVID-19 vaccines without an appointment. We are accepting walk-ins for people age 16 and older at our clinic at the Batesville Street Department Garage. The COVID-19 vaccine is available at no cost and you do not need to have health insurance. The clinic is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays through May. For up-to-date information on Margaret Mary’s vaccine clinic hours and location, visit us online at mmhealth.org/covid-19.
