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.
