Super Shot's Mission:
Promote vaccination and provide access to immunization community-wide.
Super Shot was founded in 1992 to address the critically low immunization
rates in Allen County. Free immunization clinics were opened on designated Saturdays at various sites
around the city twice each year. In the fall of 1998 changes in federal funding coupled with new state
laws mandating additional shots for children entering school, resulted in an unprecedented health
crisis for our community. To alleviate this crisis Super Shot began operating free weekly immunization
clinics in the evenings and on weekends in neighborhood convenient for families. In May of
2010, Super Shot implemented a nominal fee of $10 per immunization to ensure that we could continue to
meet the needs for accessible childhood immunizations in our community. (Families who are
unable to pay are exempted from the $10 fee.) While this change was well received, support from the
community, including local foundations, will always be vital to our program.
Super Shot provides immunizations against flu and over 15 other vaccine
preventable childhood diseases to children ages birth to 18 who are uninsured, underinsured, or
Medicaid eligible. Our largest program is our network of 9 immunization clinic sites in Fort Wayne
and surrounding communities. We also reach children through Project Immunize (for children from birth to
age two); Reminder Recall (personal and autodialed calls and postcards when a child is due or past due
for shots); and Community Education including distribution of educational materials to parents of
newborns at local hospitals, child care facilities,
community partners and at our clinic sites.
