Indiana Regional Medical Center will again open the doors to its coronavirus vaccination program for all area residents age 16 and over, regardless of whether they have appointments, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday at Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

The walk-in clinic is intended for those who have had no COVID-19 shots yet. The program offers the Pfizer vaccine.

The hospital said those who want to get the vaccination need to present photo identification. Those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
