Hoosiers 40 and older now eligible for COVID-19 vaccines

Contributed By:The 411 News

Lake County has 21 vaccination sites

The Indiana Department of Health announced that Hoosiers age 40 and older are now eligible to receive a free COVID-19 vaccine. This expansion of eligibility makes the vaccine available to an additional 415,640 Hoosiers.

Lake County has 21 vaccination sites. To schedule a vaccine, visit https://ourshot.in.gov and select a location from one of more than 400 clinics around the state.

The City of Gary has a call-in phone number to help Hoosiers get registered and receive vaccinations in Gary. Call (219) 318-0675.

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 their appointments.

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

President Biden said last week that there would be enough vaccines for all American adults seeking them by May. The White House will compel state, local, and tribal governments to make all American adults eligible to sign up for Covid-19 vaccines no later than May 1.
