This week, the Indiana Department of Health announced that more than one million Hoosiers have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine since late December. More than 569,000 Hoosiers are now fully vaccinated.
As of March 3, Hoosiers age 50 and older are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at one of the various vaccination sites across Indiana. To date, 70% of Hoosiers age 80 and older, 71% of those ages 70 to 79, 56% of those ages 60 to 69 and 28% of Hoosiers ages 55 to 59 have scheduled a vaccine appointment or received their first dose.
Three new mass vaccination clinics will offer the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which only requires one dose and has been shown from clinical trials to be safe and effective. Eligible Hoosiers will still need to make an appointment for these sites. These mass vaccination clinic schedules are as follows:
Indianapolis Motor Speedway
4790 W. 16th St., Indianapolis 46222
8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Enter through main gate off 16th Street; participants will remain in their cars when receiving their vaccines.
Ivy Tech Community College
8204 County Road 311, Sellersburg 47172
8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Participants will remain in their cars when receiving their vaccines.
University of Notre Dame
Compton Family Ice Arena
100 Compton Family Ice Arena, Notre Dame 46556
8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Additional dates to the above clinics may be added depending on vaccine availability and demand. More mass vaccination sites will also be added in other locations as more vaccine becomes available. Currently, the Indiana Department of Health is planning for a future mass vaccination clinic in Gary.
Eligible Hoosiers can register for an appointment to receive the vaccine at ourshot.in.gov or by calling 211.
