According to the Indiana State Department of Health, Hoosiers age 60 and over are now eligible to register to get the COVID-19 vaccination.
Across the state, that means the vaccine is now available to an additional 432,000 Hoosiers.
Appointments must be made in order to receive vaccination. Those appointments are available for the next four to six weeks. Appointments can be made by going online to ourshot.in.gov. If someone does not have the Internet, they have a number of options, including:
Call 211
Contact Area Agencies on Aging
Have a caregiver or loved one make the appointment
There is no cost to individuals for the vaccines.
Two doses are required for this specific vaccine. When the senior gets the first dose, an appointment for the second one will be made.
