Hoosiers 60 and older are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. The Indiana State Department of Health announced Tuesday the new age group can get the shot.

Due to limited supplies, the state is prioritizing healthcare workers and those who are most vulnerable to the virus.

ISDH says that appointments for the newly eligible population will be available over the next four to six weeks to align with the state receiving its expected weekly vaccine allocation.

Health officials in the Hoosier State will continue to open up eligibility to more age groups as more vaccines become available.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
