Putnam County Comprehensive Services (PCCS) collaborated with the Indiana Department of Health, The Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services and Abilities Services of Crawfordsville Thursday to vaccinate 110 individuals with disabilities.

PCCS nurses, employees and volunteers from Putnam County Hospital joined forces to administer the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to high-risk individuals living in the Greencastle and Crawfordsville communities. The clinic was held at the former Charlie’s restaurant in Greencastle.

When presented with the opportunity and after considering the logistics, costs and challenges, PCCS realized a vaccination clinic could be held with the help of its partners at the state and local levels.

“It was rewarding to see so many people join together to make our vision of a PCCS vaccination clinic become a reality,” PCCS Executive Director Andrew Ranck said. “There were many moving parts, but we made it work. (It) was a good day in the fight against COVID-19.”
