0

Nearly 63,000 Hoosiers ages 60-64 scheduled a free COVID-19 vaccine in their first three hours of eligibility Tuesday.

To date, 905,236 Hoosiers have received a first dose of vaccine, and 459,603 are fully vaccinated. To schedule a vaccine appointment, visit ourshot.in.gov or call 2-1-1 if you do not have access to a computer or require assistance. Additional locations and appointments are being added as more vaccine becomes available.

According to the 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 Dept. 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.
