Hoosiers aged 60 and older, along with healthcare workers, long-term care residents and first responders, are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Visit OurShot.In.Gov or call 211 to schedule the required appointment.

As of Thursday, 941,291 Hoosiers have received a first dose of vaccine, and 507,155 are fully vaccinated.

More from ISDH:

Effective immediately, only individuals who live in Indiana and meet the eligibility criteria can receive a vaccine at an Indiana clinic. This will ensure that doses allocated to Indiana go to Hoosiers. All clinics have been reminded to verify eligibility prior to administering a vaccine.

Out-of-state residents who received their first dose in Indiana can still receive their second dose at the same clinic.

The Indiana Department of Health will host 10 vaccine clinics for eligible Hoosiers around the state from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday this week. The clinics are being added to areas where there are currently no open vaccine appointments.

Individuals must register in advance at OurShot.In.Gov. No walk-ups will be allowed.
