1M Hoosiers Have Received At Least 1 COVID-19 Vaccine Shot
Indiana has provided the first dose of COVID-19 vaccines to more than 1 million Hoosiers, in just more than two months – with nearly 570,000 Hoosiers fully vaccinated.
Indiana remains on par with its Midwest neighbors. Nearly 15% of Hoosiers have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose compared to 15.9% in Kentucky, 14.4% in Ohio, and 14% in Michigan.
Here’s how vaccine progress breaks down: 69% of Hoosiers 80 and older have gotten at least their first dose; 70% of Hoosiers in their 70s have received theirs; and about half of Hoosiers in their 60s have gotten their initial dose.
