The department also announced that Hoosiers aged 55 and older are now eligible to receive the free vaccine.

Holcomb said. “We are incredibly grateful to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Notre Dame, and Ivy Tech for their willingness to meet this challenge head-on to help save Hoosier lives.”

The clinics will offer the recently approved Johnson & Johnson Vaccine, in addition to the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, stated the department.
