More Hoosiers have become eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Indiana Department of Health announced Monday that Indiana residents age 65 and older can now get the vaccine.

The need to expand eligibility for the shot was needed. According to the state health department, Hoosiers age 60 and older comprise over 22% of the population but account for 64% of the hospitalizations and over 93% of COVID-19 deaths.

The vaccine requires two doses to obtain full immunity. Appointments for the second dose will be made at the clinic when the first dose is administered. The vaccine remains available at no cost.
