Super Shot

After a measles outbreak in 1992, local hospitals joined forces to provide children free or low-cost immunizations. 

Out of those efforts a non-profit was created with a mission to break down the barriers of access and cost by operating four immunization clinics throughout Allen County. Super Shot has made vaccinations accessible to the community for 25 years.

Earlier this week, the Indiana Department of Health confirmed its first death associated with a multi-state Hepatitis A outbreak. The Fort Wayne-Allen County Department of Health has begun efforts to slow the spread of the virus.

Indiana typically sees about 20 Hepatitis A cases a year. This year, however, there are 220 cases associated with the outbreak and over 100 hospitalizations, according to the Indiana Department of Health.
