Over 75,000 individuals have already received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine throughout the state of Indiana.

New data provided by the Indiana State Department of Health shows county-by-county numbers for how many individuals have received their first dose of the vaccine, in addition to how many have been fully vaccinated.

So far, no one in the Hoosier State has been fully vaccinated - but since the first shipment of the COVID-19 vaccine arrived in Indiana on Monday, Dec. 14, a total of 75,842 individuals statewide have received their first dose.

Here's a breakdown of how many individuals have received their first dose of the vaccine in our local Indiana counties:

  • Vanderburgh County: 3,529 first doses administered
  • Warrick County: 1,634 first doses administered
  • Gibson County330 first doses administered
  • Posey County336 first doses administered
  • Pike County: 137 first doses administered
  • Perry County140 first doses administered
  • Knox County952 first doses administered
  • Daviess County211 first doses administered
  • Dubois County: 757 first doses administered
  • Spencer County188 first doses administered

The state health department breaks down to statewide demographics for vaccinated individuals as seen below.

Frontline healthcare workers were the first in line to receive the vaccine due to their frequent exposure to the virus. 

Vaccinations are now also underway for residents and staff at long-term care facilities throughout the state.

With record-breaking numbers of new positive COVID-19 cases still being reported locally, some have speculated that the vaccine couldn't have come at a better time - but as for when the general population will be able to receive the vaccine, the answer remains unclear, and depends mostly on the availability of the vaccine's supply.
