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.

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