INDIANA (WFIE) - Hoosiers 30 and older are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, according to the Indiana Department of Health.

Health officials say this expansion makes the vaccine available to more than 840,000 more Hoosiers.

Governor Eric Holcomb announced last week that he is planning to open vaccine eligibility to Hoosiers 16 and up on March 31.

He also said, starting April 6, decisions about venue capacity and social gatherings will be made by local officials, and the statewide face-covering mandate will become a mask advisory.
