INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana on Tuesday, March 2, expanded the eligibility to receive COVID-19 vaccines to any resident 55 and older.
Any Indiana resident age 55 and older is now eligible to schedule a vaccination appointment, the state health department announced.
The phased-in approach comes after vaccines have been made available to long-term care residents, firefighters, police officers and sheriff’s deputies, emergency medical services, reservists and correctional officers as well as licensed and unlicensed healthcare workers who have in-person contact with patients or infectious material in any healthcare setting.
Hoosiers age 55 and older can schedule a vaccination at the link in the red bar above or by calling 211 if they do not have access to a computer or need assistance registering. Eligible professionals must also live in Indiana and should have received an invitation and registration link from their employer, professional association, or the State of Indiana (Indiana Department of Health, Professional Licensing Agency, Family & Social Services Administration, Department of Homeland Security, or another state agency). If you are eligible and haven’t received an invitation, please ask your employer.
The public is urged to use the state website to schedule an appointment.
