The Vanderburgh County Health Department said Monday that as of Tuesday, Jan. 26, the number of available appointments to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at the health department would be increased.

According to VCHD, vaccinations are currently distributed at the health department on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

While that schedule is staying the same, VCHD says that it's now increasing the number of vaccinations that will be provided during each clinic.

Those who are currently eligible to receive the vaccine in Indiana are health care workers, first responders/law enforcement, and people who are 70-years-old and above.

Anyone under the age of 70 can also register to receive the vaccine at VCHD by signing up for the health department's back-up list, which makes unused vaccine doses available at the end of each day.

All vaccinations through VCHD are being conducted at the health department, which is located at 520 Mulberry St. in Evansville, Indiana.

The vaccine will be distributed there through Feb. 6, but the health department says that starting Feb. 9, it will conduct clinics at the Old National Events Plaza.
