PORTER — InHealth Medical Company and the Area Health Education Center are offering free drive-thru COVID-19 antibody testing next to Hawthorne Park between 9:30 a.m. and noon Wednesday.
The coronavirus antibody testing will largely coincide with drive-thru flu shots being offering from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at Hawthorne Park at 500 Ackerman Drive in Porter.
While the flu shots will take place at the park, the antibody testing will occur in the satellite parking area between Lincoln and Franklin Streets in Porter.
Volunteers will guide people through the registration form and process, the results of which are confidential.
Anyone interested can get tested for free. Organizers encourage first responders and higher-risk people such as senior citizens, the immunocompromised, and those with chronic lung and heart conditions to get tested.
No registration is required, and participants stay in their cars the whole time.
