Indiana senators passed a bill to give you more options when it comes to getting vaccinated Wednesday.

The bill allows patients to get pneumonia, tetanus, diphtheria and other vaccinations at pharmacies, like Walgreens or CVS. You would simply need a prescription from your doctor.

Right now, pharmacies can only vaccinate against the flu or shingles.

The bill now heads to the governor’s desk for his signature.
