INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) reported 41,920 additional Hoosiers are now fully vaccinated as of Thursday.

To date, 2,331,069 first doses of the two-dose vaccine have been administered and 1,840,696 individuals are fully vaccinated.

ISDH said the fully vaccinated number includes individuals who have received a second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines and those who received the single Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

ISDH also reported 1,406 more positive coronavirus cases and announced 11 additional confirmed COVID-19 deaths Thursday.

The latest ISDH dashboard data indicates the state’s 7-day all-test positivity rate of 4.5%, with a cumulative rate of 8.9% positive.

Since the start of the pandemic, ISDH has reported 718,948 total positive cases and 12,913 total deaths in Indiana. There are also 411 probable COVID-19 deaths.

As of April 26, the ISDH County Metric map shows 52 in Blue, 33 in Yellow, 7 in Orange and 0 in Red. The map is updated each Wednesday.

The weekly score is determined by each county’s Weekly Cases Per 100,000 residents and its 7-Day All Test Positivity Rate.

The latest hospitalization numbers show 890 total COVID-19 patients: 673 confirmed and 217 under investigation.

ISDH says 28.4% of ICU beds and 79% of ventilators are available across the state.
