There is a lot of information being shared about the development and administration of COVID-19 vaccines. If you are wondering about the safety, effectiveness, and have questions about some of what you may have heard, LMH Hospitalist Dr. Ben Anderson explains it all for you. This presentation is based on his research about the vaccine, and shares his reasons for why he personally chose to receive it for himself.

Logansport Memorial Hospital is monitoring and proactively responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, implementing precautions in the best interest of our community.

Vaccination Information for COVID-19

Anyone age 12 and older may now schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment. Call 211 (866-211-9966) if you do not have access to a computer or need assistance. Walk-in appointments are also accepted at most vaccination sites.

Please note that anyone younger than 18 must receive the Pfizer vaccine. It is the only vaccine to receive Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA for that age group. Proof of age will be required at the time of vaccination.

For more information about the vaccines and eligibility, please visit the Indiana State Department of Health website.

For regularly scheduled COVID-19 vaccines, please report to the Cass County Health Department COVID-19 Center (the former Logansport Regional Cancer Center building, across from Huston Park):

The clinic is open Monday - Thursday from 8 am - 4 pm; closed 11:30-12:30 for lunch. Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are also welcome. 

Observation Period:
After your vaccination, you will wait in our observation area where you will be monitored by a healthcare professional for 15 minutes to ensure you do not have an adverse reaction to the vaccine. This is mandatory. For some patients, a 30-minute observation may be required.

Second vaccine dose:
The vaccine is a two-part vaccine. You must receive the second dose to achieve full effectiveness. Depending on which vaccine you receive (Pfizer or Moderna), you must have a second vaccine dose either 21 or 28 days later. This second appointment will be scheduled while you wait during the 15-minute observation period after your first dose.
