Millions of Indiana residents are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in the State of Indiana.

The Indiana State Department of Health said that as of Wednesday, March 31, all Hoosiers age 16 and older could schedule their appointment to receive the vaccine.

With more than 1.3 million additional Hoosiers becoming eligible to receive their shot on Wednesday, the overall number of Indiana residents now eligible rose to more than 5.4 million.

Hoosiers 16 and 17 years old can receive the Pfizer vaccine. Many pharmaceutical companies continue to develop the vaccine for children, but one hasn't been approved for anyone under the age of 16.

To schedule for the vaccine, visit ourshot.in.gov and select a location across the state. Hoosiers can also call 211 or reach out to AARP or Area Agencies on Aging for assistance in signing up.

The bitterly cold start to our Wednesday will inevitably lead to a cooler-than-average afternoon across the Tri-State. We're currently expecting an afternoon high of 26° in Evansville on Wednesday afternoon (that’s 17° below average for this time of the year). Temperatures will once again dive back down towards the teens for many of us overnight and into early Thursday. As for right now Thursday morning looks as though will be slightly warmer, but only just - believes model data indicates that we will see a morning low temperature of 14° under partly cloudy skies in Evansville tomorrow morning.
