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.

We're still waiting on the actual cold front to get here. That should arrive around dawn, bringing mainly light rain. The front may also be responsible for perking up a couple bands of heavier rain and lightning east of Evansville for midday Saturday.
