Columbus fire working with CRH for in-home vaccinations

Columbus firefighters will be working with Columbus Regional Health to deliver COVID-19 vaccines to homebound residents.

The Columbus Fire Department announced yesterday that it would be providing the vaccines to those unable to travel to one of Bartholomew County’s vaccination sites. On Monday, firefighters provided four doses to residents who have registered through the Homebound Hoosiers program

Columbus Fire Chief Andy Lay said it is rewarding to be able to provide the vaccination to those who are unable to leave their homes. He said the fire department is providing a service to some of the community’s most at-risk members.

If you need to schedule a vaccine at home, you can register with the local Agency on Aging by calling 866-644-6407. The District 11 agency serves Bartholomew, Brown, Decatur, Jackson and Jennings counties.
