The Indiana State Department of Health announced Wednesday that registration to receive the COVID-19 vaccine was now available to Hoosiers age 70-years-old and above.

This comes as the next stage of Phase 1b of Indiana's vaccination plan, which initially began by allowing Hoosiers age 80 and up to schedule their vaccination appointments.

As a three-step phase, Phase 1b will expand once more in the coming days, to allow all Hoosiers age 60 and up to schedule their appointments.

Vaccine distribution began throughout the state in mid-December under Phase 1a of Indiana's plan, which allowed all frontline healthcare workers to receive the vaccine. 

Any individual currently eligible to receive the vaccine under the state's current or previous distribution phases can register online to receive the COVID-19 vaccine from any of the vaccination sites throughout the state. Click here to make a vaccination appointment online.

If you have difficulty registering online or if you know someone eligible to get vaccinated who doesn’t have access to a computer, you're asked to dial 211 from any phone for more help.

Our snowy, slick start to the day gave way to a gloomy, gray and chilly afternoon throughout the Tri-State. After only reaching temperatures in the mid 30s early in the day, we will see temperatures gradually tumble back down into the upper 20s by 10 o’clock. Despite the gradual clearing conditions overnight (which would normally lead too a much colder morning), the mercury is expected to remain relatively stable into early Tuesday morning. The return of a southerly wind flow overnight will help keep the temperatures milder as we head towards daybreak.
