When can I expect to receive my vaccine?

Indiana has worked with partners from across the state develop a vaccination plan. The goal was to get input from a variety of experts in a number of areas, including infectious disease, hospitals and health care, education, faith-based communities, pharmacies, organizations serving minorities and those with disabilities, local health departments and others.  While there is currently no timeline for when vaccines will become readily available to everyone, we can all do our part in the meantime to slow the spread of COVID-19 by following preventive measures.
