Indiana offering COVID-19 vaccine to all kids ages 5 to 11

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — All Hoosier children ages 5 to 11 are now eligible for a free COVID-19 vaccine after the federal government authorized the pediatric vaccine Tuesday.

The Indiana Department of Health announced Wednesday that the Pfizer vaccine — the only COVID-19 vaccine currently authorized for people under age 18 — will be available at a walk-in clinic outside the Indianapolis Motor Speedway beginning at 4 p.m.

Health department officials said additional locations across the state's 92 counties are expected to be updated throughout the day.

Beginning at 8 a.m. Thursday, parents can additionally schedule an appointment online for their child to receive the vaccine.
