A century-old Evansville man received the COVID-19 vaccine over the weekend.

100-year-old Ralph Probert of Evansville, Indiana received the COVID-19 vaccine at Ascension St. Vincent Evansville, where he's been regularly volunteering in the pharmacy up until the COVID-19 pandemic began, and visitor restrictions were put in place.

Probert graduated from Purdue University with a degree in engineering. He's spent time as a volunteer at Ascension St. Vincent Evansville re-entering unused pharmaceuticals into the database and connecting with young pharmacists, many of who are Purdue graduates themselves.

According to the state health department, over 193,000 Indiana residents have now received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine so far, with over 23,000 residents fully vaccinated.
