March 5th Update
The message below was distributed by Eric J. Holcomb, Governor to all Hoosier.
The Indiana Department of Health works to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The best tool we have is vaccination. The supply of vaccine is limited but will soon be available to those with certain medical conditions that place them more at risk than others of becoming severely ill if infected with COVID-19.
March 3rd Update
Those over 50 years old and teachers are now eligible for the COVID vaccine. Please refer to https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/files/Eligibility%201.5.21.pdf for the full eligibility list.
The Indiana State Department of Health has issued an announcement that any Hoosier age 80 and older is now eligible to schedule a vaccination appointment, as are long-term care residents, first responders, and licensed/unlicensed healthcare workers (individuals must meet the ISDH requirements).
Here’s an excerpt from https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/vaccine/index.htm:
“COVID-19 vaccine has arrived in Indiana
The vaccination of Hoosiers against COVID-19 has begun. Any Hoosier age 80 and older is now eligible to schedule a vaccination appointment, as are long-term care residents, first responders (fire, law enforcement, emergency medical services, reservists and volunteers) who have in-person contact with the public and licensed and unlicensed healthcare workers who have in-person contact with patients or infectious material in any healthcare setting.
Hoosiers age 80 and older can schedule a vaccination at the link in the red bar above or by calling 2-1-1 if they do not have access to a computer or need assistance registering. Eligible professionals should receive 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 a licensed healthcare provider, make sure your email is updated with the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency and continue to check your email and SPAM. If you are eligible and haven’t received an invitation, please ask your employer.
Please be patient, as vaccine supply is limited. Additional groups will be eligible as soon as vaccine supplies permit.” – https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/vaccine/index.htm
