Today, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb, Dr. Box, and Dr. Weaver announced during their weekly public press conference a plan to start vaccinating Hoosiers who are age 80 and older.

The website to register will be www.ourshot.in.gov or you can call 211 to speak to someone who can help you schedule an appointment. NOTE that this website will not be accessible until 9:00am on January 8.

This opportunity is available for any Indiana resident who is 80 or older on the date of their first appointment. The vaccine will be available at no cost. Finally, it is a two-part vaccine so you must get a second dose after 21 or 28 days, depending on the manufacturer (Pfizer or Moderna). Here is the state's website: https://www.coronavirus.in.gov/vaccine/ for additional information.
