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.
