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.

Following the passage of some scattered rainfall earlier this morning this afternoon turned out to be quite pleasant, albeit cooler overall. After peaking at 73° on Monday afternoon in Evansville, the River City reached just 68° earlier today - obviously a drop of just 5° isn't anything significant from day to day, but that difference signals the arrival of a cooling trend expected to last into the weekend ahead. As for the remainder of our Tuesday, expect our mainly cloudy skies to linger into the evening and overnight hours as temperatures gradually dwindle into the upper 40s for many of us.
