The Indiana State Department of Health announced on Thursday more than 1 million Hoosier have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

As of Thursday, a total of 1,081,521 individuals had received both doses of their vaccines, while a total of 1,530,403 have received at least their first dose of the vaccine.

“Hitting the 1 million mark is an exciting milestone as we look to put this pandemic in our rear-view mirror,” said State Health Commissioner Kris Box, M.D., FACOG. “As we prepare to open vaccine eligibility to people age 16 and older next Wednesday, I encourage every eligible Hoosier to sign up for a vaccine as soon as possible so that they can protect themselves and those they love.”

Hoosiers age 40 and older, along with healthcare workers, long-term care residents, first responders who are regularly called to the scene of an emergency to render medical assistance, and educators and school support staff through grade 12 are currently eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb expects that by March 31, all Hoosiers age 16 and up will be eligible to receive the vaccine as well.

We're still waiting on the actual cold front to get here. That should arrive around dawn, bringing mainly light rain. The front may also be responsible for perking up a couple bands of heavier rain and lightning east of Evansville for midday Saturday.
