The Indiana State Dept. of Health today announced more than 2 million Hoosiers are now fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
As of today, a total of 4,395,106 doses have been administered in Indiana. This includes 2,389,057 first doses and 2,006,049 individuals who are fully vaccinated.
“Doubling the number of Hoosiers who are fully protected from COVID-19 in just over two months is a reason to celebrate, but we need to continue to vaccinate everyone who is eligible so that we can protect our communities and the people we love,” Indiana State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box said.
Hoosiers age 16 and older can receive a free COVID-19 vaccine. Appointments are recommended but are not required at most clinics. To find a vaccination clinic, visit ourshot.in.gov or call 2-1-1.
