Hoosiers 30 and older now eligible to receive COVID-19 vaccine

Indiana residents 30 and older are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, according to an update on the Indiana State Department of Health website Monday.

This means the vaccine will now be available to more than 840,000 Hoosiers, according to the IndyStar. More than 1 million people in Indiana have been fully vaccinated. Indiana State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box reported Wednesday 1.7 million Hoosiers have received at least one dose of the vaccine, accounting for 32% of the Indiana population over 16-years-old.

The state will open eligibility to all Hoosiers 16 and up on Wednesday.

Appointments can be scheduled at ourshot.gov.in or by calling 2-1-1 if they need assistance registering.
