Indiana expands COVID-19 vaccines to Hoosiers 70 and older

Coronavirus

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana State Department of Health says Hoosiers 70 and older can now register to receive coronavirus vaccinations as Indiana continues to expand access to the shots.

The vaccines became available to Indiana residents 80 and older last Friday following the initial rollout of doses for Indiana health care workers and nursing home residents and staffers in December.

The Indiana State Department of Health announced Wednesday that appointments for those 70 and older can be made at the website ourshot.in.gov or by calling the state’s 2-1-1 telephone assistance service. A caregiver or loved one also may make an appointment on behalf of an eligible senior.
