How to schedule an appointment:

Family members may schedule an appointment on behalf of the eligible person, online or by phone.

If scheduling online: Using Firefox or Chrome as your browser, visit in.gov.

  1. Select “Find a vaccine site” to access the registration portal.
  2. Enter one’s zip code to see a map of vaccination locations
  3. Register using their name and age.

To schedule by phone,call 211 between 8 a.m. ET and 8 p.m. any day of the week. Call center representatives will make an appointment for the eligible senior, and may provide information on additional details, such as transportation to appointments.

Read this before scheduling :

The vaccine requires two doses to be effective; the second appointment will be scheduled when the first dose is administered. Keep this in mind when scheduling the first appointment—those who receive the Pfizer vaccine must return to the same location 19 – 23 days later for the second dose; and those who get the Moderna vaccine must do so 28 days later.

The person getting vaccinated needs to bring a photo ID and, if they have insurance, a copy of their insurance card. The vaccine is free to them.

Hoosier K-12 Teachers and Childcare Workers: 

can now get the COVID-19 vaccine outside of the state’s plan through federal pharmacy program sites – in Indiana, that’sKroger,MeijerandWalmart.

Gov. Eric Holcomb said teachers who aren’t otherwise eligible for the vaccine in Indiana (which, as of Wednesday, means anyone younger than 50) must schedule their appointments directly with those three stores.
