To date, 2,495,691 first doses of the two-dose vaccine have been administered and 2,282,103 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 798 more positive coronavirus cases and announced 5 additional confirmed COVID-19 deaths Saturday.

The latest ISDH dashboard data indicates the state’s 7-day all-test positivity rate of 5.1%, with a cumulative rate of 8.7% positive.

A historical load of negative & positive labs resulted in the addition of 9,041 historical tests administered, 2,478 tested individuals and 372 historical cases to Saturday’s counts. These cases are not included in the new counts.

Since the start of the pandemic, ISDH has reported 734,736 total positive cases and 13,054 total deaths in Indiana. There are also 417 probable COVID-19 deaths.

As of May 10, the ISDH County Metric map shows 40 in Blue, 45 in Yellow, 6 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 832 total COVID-19 patients: 615 confirmed and 217 under investigation.

ISDH says 34.6% of ICU beds and 79% of ventilators are available across the state.
