Flu Vaccine Update

As November 4 we have flu for ages 6 months to 18 years of age. In partnership with Walgreens we also have free flu shots for adults at all of our clinics except First Care

Super Shot's Mission:

To educate, promote vaccination and increase avenues for immunizations for all children in Allen County and surrounding communities. Super Shot's vision is a 90% immunization rate for Allen County.

History:

Super Shot was founded in 1992 to address the critically low immunization rates in Allen County. Free immunization clinics were opened on designated Saturdays at various sites around the city twice each year. In the fall of 1998 changes in federal funding coupled with new state laws mandating additional shots for children entering school, resulted in an unprecedented health crisis for our community. To alleviate this crisis Super Shot began operating free weekly immunization clinics in the evenings and on weekends in neighborhoods convenient for families. In May of 2010, Super Shot implemented a nominal fee of $8 per immunization to ensure that we could continue to meet the needs for accessible childhood immunizations in our community. (Families who are unable to pay are exempted from the $8 fee.) While this change was well received, support from the community, including local foundations, will always be vital to our program.

Program Description:

Super Shot provides immunizations against flu and over 15 other vaccine preventable childhood diseases to children ages birth to 18 who are uninsured, underinsured, or Medicaid eligible. Our largest program is our network of 8 immunization clinic sites in Fort Wayne and surrounding communities. We also reach children through Project Immunize (for children from birth to age two); Reminder Recall (personal and autodialed calls and postcards when a child is due or past due for shots); and Community Education including distribution of educational materials to parents of newborns at local hospitals, child care facilities, community partners and at clinic sites.
