Indiana expands vaccine eligibility to people 55 and older

March 2, 2021

Indiana - Hoosiers between ages 55 and 59 are now eligible to receive their COVID-19 vaccine, which means hundreds of thousands of people in the state can now sign up for an appointment. The expansion is seen as a good sign that Indiana is about to receive a relatively large increase in doses in the coming weeks.

The state is also announcing three new mass vaccination sites including at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Indy's westside, Ivy Tech Community College in Sellersburg near Cincinnati, and at the University of Notre Dame. Those three sites will offer the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which is a single-shot vaccine, unlike the Pfizer and Moderna versions that require two shots.

The IMS will run from March 5 through March 7 from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., March 12-13 at Ivy Tech in Sellersburg and March 26-27 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Notre Dame's Compton Family Ice Arena.

As of Monday, 1,000,321 Hoosiers had received at least one shot, and 569,465 Hoosiers had been fully vaccinated. To sign up for an appointment, visit Our Shot Indiana online. You can also call 211 for appointment scheduling assistance.
