More than 1 million Hoosiers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, three months into the state’s rollout. The Indiana Department of Health announced the milestone Thursday.

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that puts us right alongside our immediate neighbors. 

The CDC’s data from March 24 reports 14.7 percent of all Hoosiers fully vaccinated. That compares to 14.4 percent in Kentucky, 14.5 percent in Ohio, 14.3 percent in Michigan and 14.5 percent in Illinois.

State officials announced earlier this week Indiana will open vaccine eligibility to all Hoosiers 16 and older on March 31. Hoosiers 40 and older are already eligible for vaccines.

To sign up for a COVID-19 vaccine, you can register at OurShot.in.gov. If you’re in need of assistance, you can call 211. About 70 public libraries, AARP and Indiana’s Area Agencies on Aging may also be able to help with registration.

OurShot.IN.gov will redirect you to a map, which lists vaccination sites by county. Select the one closest to you (or your loved one). And then select “Click here to register.” Select what group best describes you, and then register for your vaccine.
