The vaccination clinic at Ball State’s Interprofessional Community Clinic is supported through the generosity of a grant from the Ball Brothers Foundation. It is being held in collaboration with the Delaware County Health Department and is available to the general public.

Get Tested

Through a partnership with IU Health, COVID-19 testing appointments are available 7 days a week for Ball State students or employees. Anyone who is experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or who has come in direct contact with someone who has tested positive should be tested.
