(Indianapolis, IN) - Tens of thousands of Hoosiers have made appointments to receive free COVID-19 vaccinations beginning today. According to state health officials, close to 86,000 people have made reservations as of yesterday afternoon.
The first round of vaccinations are for Hoosiers age 80 and up. Officials say less than four percent of the state’s population is 80 and over but that age bracket represents 19 percent of the hospitalizations and more than half of the COVID-19 deaths in the state.
Reservations can be made at www.ourshot.in.gov or by calling 211. Locally, the vaccinations are being given in the Community Building at the La Porte County fairgrounds.
