FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA) - On March 31, the Indiana State Department of Health announced that businesses with over 1,000 employees would be able to receive doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Sweetwater is one of the first businesses in the area to offer the vaccine in the workplace.

Sweetwater started giving shots out Monday to employees that want them, and that will continue for the next few weeks. Employees and their family members are able to sign up for the shots.

Those at Sweetwater say the on-site clinic will help save time, allowing employees to take less time off if they can’t get their vaccine outside of their work hours. Sweetwater won’t need any on-site help from the state, as shots will be given by the Sweetwater medical clinic’s doctor and nurse. The vaccine clinic is not only convenient, but it also can help employees get vaccinated faster than at other vaccination sites.
