MUNCIE, Ind. — For those struggling to find time between work and other obligations to receive a COVID-19 vaccine; you’re in luck. Meridian Health Services will begin to offer evening and weekend appointments.
The healthcare system recently opened its second vaccination site at its Pediatric Complex, 205 N. Tillotson Ave. Generally, the vaccination appointments run 3-7:30 p.m. on weeknights and 11 a.m.-5:20 p.m. on weekends.
Appointments are currently available as soon as next-day. The location only offers the Moderna vaccine, which is only approved for those 18 and older.
