State health officials in Indiana are once again expanding eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine.

During his Wednesday COVID-19 update, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb said all Hoosiers age 50-years-old and above could now schedule their appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Gov. Holcomb said that once more vaccine becomes available, Hoosiers age 40 and older would become eligible incrementally. According to the governor, additional comorbidities will also be added to the eligibility list in the coming days.

Holcomb says that when the time comes to allow Hoosiers age 40-49 to receive the vaccine, it will add 91% of the state's residents who have comorbidities and over 50% of Indiana's teachers to the eligibility list.

Other vaccine resources are available for Indiana residents who don't qualify under the current conditions.

In Indiana (and Kentucky), Deaconess is offering the COVID-19 vaccine to anyone who's at least 18-years-old that's classified as high risk by the CDC. Individuals who qualify can sign up through Deaconess's waiting list.

Similarly, the Vanderburgh County Health Department offers a waiting list of its own.

To schedule an appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Indiana: visit ourshot.in.gov or dial 211.

The bitterly cold start to our Wednesday will inevitably lead to a cooler-than-average afternoon across the Tri-State. We're currently expecting an afternoon high of 26° in Evansville on Wednesday afternoon (that’s 17° below average for this time of the year). Temperatures will once again dive back down towards the teens for many of us overnight and into early Thursday. As for right now Thursday morning looks as though will be slightly warmer, but only just - believes model data indicates that we will see a morning low temperature of 14° under partly cloudy skies in Evansville tomorrow morning.
