There has been an uptick at the Crown Point hospital of unvaccinated people in their 30s and 40s with coronavirus, said Jason Middleton, Franciscan Health Crown Point vice president of administrative services. He said getting more people in the area vaccinated will combat that trend.

“We’re excited to be able to provide this opportunity for students, school employees and their families to receive the vaccine, particularly since availability just opened up to those age 12 and up,” Middleton said.
