Indiana makes those 70 and older eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations

The Indiana State Department of Health on Wednesday said residents age 70 and older can now schedule COVID-19 vaccinations.

Vaccinations had been limited to those 80 and older since Friday as part of the vaccination rollout to the general public.

The vaccination effort originally started in mid-December, beginning with health care workers and then residents of long-term care facilities.

Hoosiers can register at ourshot.in.gov. Vaccinations are free and family members can register for a senior. Hoosiers can also register by calling 2-1-1 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week.

Other age groups will follow in descending order over the next few weeks, as Indiana continues to make the vaccine available to the general public.

As of Tuesday, 204,326 people in Indiana had received the first of two vaccine doses, while another 31,432 had been fully vaccinated.
