History of Super Shot
Super Shot was founded by the compassion of two determined community leaders who cared deeply about the health of local children. Dr. Jane Irmscher, Health Commissioner of the Allen County Health Department, and Sister Mary Conrad Kirchhoff, a Poor Handmaid of Jesus Christ, brought key community leaders together to address our community’s low immunization rate. The alliance that made Super Shot possible was Parkview Memorial Hospital, St. Joseph Medical Center, the Lutheran Hospital of Indiana, Fort Wayne Community Schools, the Fort Wayne/Allen County Board of Health, the Junior League of Fort Wayne, Three Rivers Health Services, the Fort Wayne Healthy Cities program, South Fort Wayne Kiwanis, and Matthew 25 Health Care Clinic. Their legacy of compassion and care for children continues thanks to the generous support of our community.
