Teachers and educators in Indiana can now make appointments to receive the COVID-19 vaccine through the federal pharmacy program.
Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb announced the update during his weekly press conference Wednesday afternoon. President Joe Biden called for states to prioritize COVID-19 vaccinations for teachers Tuesday, and hopes every educator can have at least one shot by the end of March. It’s unclear how soon Indiana educators will be able to sign up through the federal pharmacy program.
For Indiana teachers and educators to register for a vaccination is slightly different than the rest of the state population, where people ages 50 and older are now eligible as of Wednesday.
Teachers must sign up through the federal pharmacy program.
Indiana’s federal partners are:
- Kroger (https://www.kroger.com/rx/covid-eligibility)
- Meijer (https://clinic.meijer.com/)
- Walmart (https://www.walmart.com/cp/flu-shots-immunizations/1228302)
Educators wanting to register must do so through the individual pharmacy sites. Pharmacy locations can be found using ourshot.in.gov, but teachers can’t register through that site.
If you have questions, visit the CDC’s website about the federal pharmacy program for answers. You can also download a flyer about how to register for your COVID-19 vaccine.
