Nearly 62,000 Hoosiers ages 5 to 11 receive COVID-19 vaccine in just less than a month
Pediatric COVID-19 vaccine appointments opened just more than four weeks ago – nearly 62,000 have already received at least one of two doses.
There are 608,000 5- to 11 year-olds in Indiana and more than 10 percent have already received at least one dose in a little less than a month.
The pediatric dose is one-third the size of the dose for Hoosiers 12 and older. Hoosiers ages 5 to 17 can only receive the Pfizer vaccine.
