A total of 1,000,321 Hoosiers have received at least one dose, the department said; 569,465 are fully vaccinated. 

Hoosiers 60 years old and older are eligible to receive the vaccination, along with health care workers, emergency responders and long-term care residents. Indiana residents can go to or call 211 for assistance to schedule an appointment at nearly 400 locations throughout the state. 

To date, 69% of Hoosiers ages 80 and older, 70% of Hoosiers 70 to 79 years old and 49% of Hoosiers 60 to 69 years old have scheduled an appointment or received their first dose. 

Additional appointments and locations are being added as more vaccine becomes available, the department said.
