Hoosiers Age 16 and Up Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccine as of March 31

All Indiana residents age 16 and up will become eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as of March 31, according to Gov. Holcomb.

According to Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb, all residents of the state age 16-years-old and above will become eligible to schedule their appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine as of Wednesday, March 31.

The governor says the March 31 expansion of eligibility depends on the state's anticipated reception of additional doses of the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines.

Gov. Holcomb says this shouldn't be a problem, as the state's federal partners have told the state to expect large increasing the amount of vaccine beginning the last week in March.

Currently, over 1 million Hoosiers have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 - an important milestone in what Gov. Holcomb called a "life and death game-changer."

Gov. Holcomb announced the state's plans to expand vaccine eligibilty during a substantial address delivered Tuesday on the state's road forward through the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to his announcement on vaccine eligibility, Gov. Holcomb's update to the state on Tuesday also included the transformation of his statewide mask mandate into a mask advisory, the reduction of restrictions on restaurants and businesses, and more.

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.
