State health officials in Indiana said Tuesday that a new group of Hoosiers could receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

All Hoosiers age 55-years-old and above can now schedule their appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, the Indiana State Department of Health said Tuesday.

As of Monday, over 1 million Hoosiers had received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, with almost 570,000 fully vaccinated.

In addition to those age 55 and up, other Indiana residents eligible to receive the vaccine include long-term care residents, first responders (fire, law enforcement, emergency medical services, reservists, and volunteers) who have in-person contact with the public, and licensed and unlicensed healthcare workers who have in-person contact with patients or infectious material in any healthcare setting.

Other vaccine resources are available for Indiana residents who don't qualify under those 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.
