IMS, Indiana Department of Health Partner To Host COVID-19 Vaccination, Testing Clinics

The Indiana Department of Health, in partnership with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, announced today that Hoosiers will be able to receive free COVID-19 vaccinations and testing during a five-week clinic being hosted starting Tuesday, Sept. 21.

The clinics will be held in the INDYCAR parking lot at 4551 W. 16th St., Indianapolis, across from Gate 2. The two-dose Pfizer vaccine and single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be offered. Vaccinations and testing will be offered from noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday through Oct. 30.

“The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is proud to once again serve as a COVID-19 vaccine location,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles said. “We encourage all Hoosiers to stay healthy, and we will offer COVID-19 tests and flu vaccines in addition to COVID-19 vaccines to further those efforts. Together, IMS, the state Department of Health and the central Indiana community already have helped more than 90,000 people receive the vaccine at the Speedway this year, and we know this next opportunity will help provide an additional measure of safety for our community.”

Pre-registration is available for COVID-19 vaccinations and testing. To pre-register for a vaccination, go to and search by ZIP code 46222. To pre-register for a COVID-19 test at the site, visit and click on the testing link at the top of the page, then search for the IMS site.

Individuals who visit the site for a vaccine or COVID-19 testing also can receive a flu vaccination while supplies last. No appointments are required for flu vaccinations, which will be available for individuals regardless of insurance status. However, all applicable insurance coverage will be billed for seasonal influenza vaccine.

“We are grateful to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for once again stepping up to help Hoosiers during this pandemic,” said State Health Commissioner Kris Box, M.D., FACOG. “Demand for COVID-19 testing remains high at this time, and being able to offer both testing and vaccinations, as well as flu shots, gives us the best opportunity possible to protect Hoosiers.”
