State expands COVID-19 vaccines to residents 50+

The list of people who can get the coronavirus vaccine in Indiana is growing again.

Gov. Eric Holcomb announced yesterday that the state will expand eligibility to include people who are 50 and older.

People who are 50-plus make up just 35 percent of Indiana’s population, but they account for 80 percent of coronavirus hospitalizations and 98 percent of all coronavirus deaths. The state, however, is once again reminding people that being eligible doesn’t guarantee anyone a shot, doses in Indiana remain in short supply.

Hoosiers can now see which vaccine is available at each COVID-19 vaccination site. The registration website now specifies if each location has the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
