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.
