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.

It's going to be a beautiful afternoon with highs topping out in the low to mid 60s. You better enjoy today because rain chances are moving in tonight. Unfortunately, they'll be sticking around for the weekend. Saturday and Sunday will have pop up shower chances with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
