Indiana opens up COVID-19 vaccinations to those 30 and older

Hoosiers ages 30 and older are now eligible to sign up for a free COVID-19 vaccine, the Indiana Department of Health announced Monday morning.

The department said the expansion of eligibility makes the vaccine available to more than 840,000 additional Hoosiers. Hoosiers 40 and older have been eligible to sign up for the vaccine since March 22.

As previously announced, beginning Wednesday, Hoosiers age 16 and older also will be able to schedule a vaccine.

Vaccine appointments will extend over the next several weeks to align with expected vaccine deliveries to the state, the state said.

To schedule a vaccine, Indiana residents can visit and select a location from one of more than 530 clinics around the state. Hoosiers who do not have a computer or cell phone or those who need assistance scheduling an appointment can call 211 or contact one of Indiana’s Area Agencies on Aging, or AARP. Nearly 70 libraries around the state also are helping Hoosiers schedule appointments.

Vaccination clinics that are part of the federal vaccine program, including those at Meijer and Kroger, appear on the clinic map at but are scheduled through those retailers’ platforms, not through the state centralized system.

So far, more than 1.08 million Hoosiers have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. More than 1.6 million had received the first dose of a two-dose vaccination.
