State opens COVID vaccine eligibility to those 55 to 59 years old 


The Indiana State Dept. of Health has opened COVID-19 vaccine eligibility to Hoosiers between 55 and 59 years old.

Because of limited vaccine supplies nationally, Indiana has prioritized health care workers, first responders and Indiana’s oldest residents. Additional groups will be added as more vaccine becomes available.

To schedule a vaccine, visit and select a location from one of more than 370 clinics around the state. Hoosiers who do not have a computer or cell phone or those who need assistance scheduling an appointment can call 2-1-1 or contact one of Indiana’s Area Agencies on Aging or AARP. Nearly 70 libraries around the state also are helping Hoosiers schedule their appointments.

Vaccination clinics that are part of the federal vaccine program, including those at Walmart, Sam’s Club and Kroger, appear on the clinic map at but are scheduled through those retailers’ platforms, not through the state centralized system.
