CLAY COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Big things are happening for health care in Clay County.

On Tuesday, a resolution was passed at the Clay County Commissioners meeting that will approve that the county can partner with a company called VaxCare.

Right now, the health department offers vaccines to residents free of charge. But only for people without insurance or on Medicaid.

Insured people with high deductibles that didn't cover vaccines were being missed. Because of the partnership with VaxCare, those people can now get vaccinated.

"Several counties around us have VaxCare and they're very successful and happy with that so hopefully it'll be good for our county also," explained Kim Hyatt, Public Health Nurse in Clay County.

Hyatt says they hope to have the partnership with VaxCare up and running by summer.

She says she'd like to see it in place so students can be vaccinated before school starts in the fall.
