INDIANAPOLIS — The next group of Hoosiers eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine will be aged 65-69, Gov. Eric Holcomb said Thursday.

The initial plan called for the next group to be between 60-69, but officials changed it after learning the vaccines are coming from the federal government slower than expected.

There are about 300,000 people aged 65-69 in Indiana, about the same amount as people aged 70-79. There is no estimated date for when the next eligibility date to open.

As of Thursday afternoon, more than 362,000 Hoosiers have received their first dose of the vaccine. More than 87,000 have been fully vaccinated.
