Indiana residents 55 and older, high-risk patients eligible to sign up for COVID-19 vaccine

Indiana residents 55 and older can now register to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Initial groups of patients at the highest risk of severe illness from COVID-19 who are identified by their healthcare provider are also eligible. These individuals will receive a unique registration link by text or email or may call 211 after receiving the notification:

  • Active dialysis patients
  • Sickle cell disease patients
  • Down syndrome patients
  • Post-solid organ transplant patients
  • People who are actively in treatment (chemotherapy, radiation, surgery) for cancer or were in the last three months, or with active primary lung cancer or active hematologic cancers (lymphoma, leukemia, and multiple myeloma)

The Indiana State Department of Health expanded the eligibility Tuesday morning. The department’s registration website listed people 55 years or older as eligible to sign up to get the vaccine Tuesday morning.

Please contact your healthcare provider if you think you are eligible but haven’t yet received notification.
