Regional News

INDIANAPOLIS (FOX59) – Indiana Health officials provided an update Wednesday on COVID-19 and the state’s vaccination efforts.

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advisory committee will meet Wednesday to decide whether to recommend Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine for adolescents ages 12-15. If the CDC’s recommendation is favorable, the Pfizer vaccine will be available for that age group starting 8 a.m. Thursday.

The FDA has already endorsed the move. President Joe Biden is expected to provide an update at 3:30 p.m. ET on the country’s vaccination program.

Currently, anyone age 16 and older may schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment. Registration is available online or by calling 211 (866-211-9966). Walk-in appointments are also accepted at most vaccination sites.
