Super Shot Receives $40,000 Grant from the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation

Fort Wayne, Indiana – February 5, 2024

Super Shot Inc., of Fort Wayne, Indiana, has been awarded a $40,000 grant from the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation. This grant will protect over 12,000 children and 3,000 adults from vaccine-preventable diseases through Super Shot’s community immunization clinics and services.

Super Shot has a long history of support from the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation as Sister Mary Conrad Kirchhoff, a Poor Handmaid of Jesus Christ, brought key community leaders together to address Fort Wayne’s low immunization rate in 1993.  Through her work and determination, Super Shot was founded, and continues to keep the community healthy decades later.  Her legacy of compassion and care for children continues thanks to the generous support of the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation.

“We are deeply grateful for the partnership and support of the St. Joseph Community Health Foundation.  This donation will provide immunizations to children and adults who need our services regardless of their ability to pay. We are humbled to advance Sister Mary Conrad’s vision of all children in our community having access to immunizations.”- Connie Heflin; Executive Director Super Shot.

Super Shot serves children who are covered by the Healthy Indiana Plan (HIP) and provides immunizations to underinsured or uninsured adults and children. If uninsured or underinsured, there is a $20 administration fee per immunization, but Super Shot will turn no one away for inability to pay. Super Shot also accepts most commercial insurance plans.

Funding addresses critical need for vaccination services in Allen County

December 18, 2023, FORT WAYNE, IN—Super Shot, Inc. has been awarded a $200,000 grant from the Allen County Department of Health’s pivotal Health First Allen County program, a new state and local partnership to provide funding for local health departments to improve core public health services through community partners. The grant for Super Shot aims to bolster access to adult and childhood immunizations within our community.

“Indiana currently holds the 40th spot in the United States for the percentage of children fully immunized by 24 months,* a statistic that calls for our collective attention,” shared Connie Heflin, the Executive Director of Super Shot. “The additional funding from Health First Allen County will help Super Shot safeguard more children as well as adults in our community from preventable diseases.”

The grant will enable Super Shot, a non-profit funded solely through public and private donations, to sustain and expand vaccination services and provide vaccination education.

Super Shot offers all Centers for Disease Control (CDC)-recommended vaccinations for children and adults through its 1515 Hobson Road clinic, school-based clinics, and community outreach clinics. Super Shot is also one of the few Vaccines for Children (VFC) providers in Fort Wayne—a federal program that provides free vaccines from the CDC to protect eligible babies, young children, and adolescents who might not otherwise be vaccinated because of financial constraints.

Super Shot is open weekdays, evenings, and weekends to provide flexibility for busy families. Medicaid and most commercial insurance are accepted. A nominal fee is requested for uninsured and underinsured children and adults, but no one is turned away for an inability to pay.

“This strategic investment by Health First Allen County reflects a shared commitment to fostering public health and safeguarding the well-being of our community members through comprehensive immunization initiative,” said Heflin. “Super Shot is honored to be a recipient of this grant and is dedicated to leveraging these funds to make a meaningful impact on the health of our community.”
