As of Monday, all Indiana residents age 40-years-old and above became eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at any vaccination site throughout the state.

According to the Indiana State Department of Health, which oversees vaccine eligibility throughout the Hoosier State, this expansion of eligibility makes over 400,000 more Indiana residents eligible to receive the vaccine.

To schedule your appointment to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, you can visit https://ourshot.in.gov and select a location from one of more than 450 clinics around the state.

Hoosiers who don't have a computer or cell phone or those who need assistance scheduling an appointment can call 211 for help.

Leaders in both Illinois and Kentucky have committed to expanding vaccine eligibility in their states to all individuals age 16-years-old and above by Monday, April 12, but Indiana has yet to commit to that same deadline.

ISDH says that additional groups of individuals will become eligible to receive the vaccine as more vaccine becomes available to the state.
