Just days after the Commonwealth of Kentucky outlined plans for distributing COVID-19 vaccines, the Hoosier state is also announcing its own strategy.
As several pharmaceutical companies look to produce a viable vaccine, the state was asked to come with plans for getting efficient distribution.
In the first phase of the plan, the vaccine would be available to those working in health care settings, who could potentially be exposed to patients, and others who are at a higher risk of suffering serious medical conditions or even death from the virus.
The second phase of the plan offers the vaccine to anyone with an elevated risk of transmission because they are working or living with others, including people living in group homes, shelters, and correctional facilities.
The draft also allows those involved in essential in-person work, where social distancing cannot be achieved, and where the risk of transmission is high.
Phase three of the plan makes the vaccine available to the general public.
The Indiana State Department of Health released the plan late Tuesday.
