As we watch the vaccination rate of those ages 12+ in Indiana, we continue to see Zionsville (the 46077 zip code) among the highest vaccination rates in the state. As I type this, 46077 is 80.8% fully vaccinated for those ages 12+. That's the second-highest zip code in the state. This is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Boone County Health Department and its volunteers, to community leaders working together and to you… our residents. Zionsville is literally leading the way in Indiana.
When vaccination rollout began, I vowed to work diligently with our local and state health department officials. Our team stood ready to do our part to aid in the vaccination effort when called upon to do so by the county and state health departments. I formed a coalition of leaders within our Town government and we rolled up our sleeves and got to work. The focus was, and remains today, keeping our staff and our residents safe and on getting our businesses through this.
I am thankful to the Boone County Health Department for running the county’s vaccination site with utmost efficiency and care to visitors and to our residents for understanding the importance of rolling up our sleeves. There is still work to be done - Boone County has been deemed "yellow" by the Indiana State Department of Health. Please continue to do your part. This month the Boone County Health Department vaccine clinic accepts walk-ins, but appointments can be made at ourshot.in.gov. There is so much reason to be hopeful in the second half of 2021 – the return of the Zionsville Farmers’ Market, families eating out together at restaurants and momentum in Town projects including the Municipal Action Center, the Zionsville Gateway Area and Wayfinding projects.
