OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) - The Douglas County Health Department announced Friday morning it was closing the drive-through vaccination clinic at CHI Health Center arena “due to repeated acts of vandalism.”

The health department said in a news release that those with appointments at the location would be contacted by DCHD staff to reschedule while a new location is determined.

The Omaha Fire Department Arson Unit confirmed that there was a fire at a small building on the far north side of parking lot D, where the drive-through clinic was placed.

OFD states that the fire is still under investigation by the Arson Unit.

“Due to the investigation into these incidents, DCHD will have no further comment at this time,” the release states.

The clinic opened just shy of a month ago in Lot D of the arena, located off Abbott Drive.
