On Friday, Indiana Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch received her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine at the Deaconess Downtown Clinic vaccination site in Evansville, Indiana.
Crouch, who is 68-years-old, received the Pfizer vaccination and is scheduled to receive her second dose in approximately three weeks.
Earlier in the same week, the Hoosier State opened up vaccine eligibility to anyone who is age 65 and above.
"The COVID-19 vaccine is one tool we have to help Hoosiers end this pandemic and return to a sense of normalcy," Crouch said.
Lt. Gov. Crouch says she's thankful to the Deaconess workers who helped administer her vaccination, and that she encourages eligible Hoosiers to schedule an appointment.
As of Friday, the state health department said that 661,033 Hoosiers had received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, with 191,247 fully vaccinated after receiving their second dose.
