Verbatim: Super Shot Receives Grant from the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation

The following was released on Wed., January 30, 2019:

Fort Wayne, Indiana – January 29, 2019 –The St. Joseph Community Health Foundation recently awarded Super Shot a two year grant of $140,000 to provide immunizations for low income families. This funding allows Super Shot to operate four immunization clinics in Allen County and provide lifesaving immunizations to over 10,000 children annually.

Super Shot has a long history of support from the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation as Sister Mary Conrad Kirchhoff, a Poor Handmaid of Jesus Christ, brought key community leaders together to address Fort Wayne’s low immunization rate in 1993. Through her work and determination, Super Shot was founded, and continues to keep the community healthy over 25 years later. Her legacy of compassion and care for children continues thanks to the generous support of the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation.

Super Shot operates four walk-in Clinics and no appointment is needed. One of our clients recently said, “Our family doctor recommended that I bring my children to Super Shot for their vaccines. The locations are convenient and it is a blessing for our family.”

Super Shot serves all children who are covered by the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) and provides immunizations to underinsured or uninsured adults and children. If uninsured or underinsured, there is a $10 administration fee per immunization, but Super Shot will turn no one away for inability to pay.
