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.

Today’s high temperatures in the mid to low 90s marked our hottest recorded in the Tri-State in at least 3 weeks. Worse yet, dew point values in the upper 60s made it feel oppressively hot earlier today - most of us reached the triple digits at times today. Believe it or not, temperatures are expected to get even hotter these next few days! After dipping back into the uppers 60s and low 70s during the predawn hours Tuesday, the mercury will skyrocket back into the mid to low 90s!
