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.
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.
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.
