INDIANAPOLIS - Nearly 86,000 Indiana senior citizens have registered to receive free COVID-19 vaccines as of 4 p.m. Sunday.
According to the Indiana Department of Health, while seniors age 80 and older only account for less than 4% of Indiana's population, seniors represent more than 19% of all hospitalizations and more than half of COVID-19 deaths.
Health officials say there will be at least one clinic per county. Appointments for the secondary dose will be made on sight.
Vaccines are free, but insurance may be charged an administrative fee.
