Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine shot today at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The 52-year-old governor said he is feeling healthy and well after receiving the one-dose shot, which received Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA on Saturday.

“I feel great joy to be among the thousands of other Hoosiers getting protected from this virus at the greatest spectacle in vaccination,” Gov. Holcomb said. “I want to say thank you to the nearly 17,000 Hoosiers who are making the trek to IMS today through Monday to be vaccinated and to the thousands of other Hoosiers being vaccinated every day. Thank you for doing your part to help us stay healthy and beat this virus.”

Hoosiers age 50 and older are eligible to receive a free COVID-19 vaccine.
