CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Many people have lots of questions now that the COVID-19 vaccine is available. The information varies from state to state, and is constantly changing, but here’s what we know right now:

OHIO

The vaccine has also been sent to hundreds of pharmacies and clinics around the state. Each location is handling sign-ups and appointments differently.

INDIANA

Anyone over the age of 12 is now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in Indiana.

To schedule an appointment, visit https://ourshot.in.gov and select a location from one of more than 400 clinics around the state.

Vaccination clinics that are part of the federal vaccine program, including those at Meijer and Kroger, appear on the clinic map at https://ourshot.in.gov but are scheduled through those retailers’ platforms, not through the state centralized system.

Hoosiers who do not have a computer or cell phone or those who need assistance scheduling an appointment can call 211 or contact one of Indiana’s Area Agencies on Aging or AARP.

Nearly 70 libraries around the state also are helping Hoosiers schedule their appointments.

For Indiana residents who are unable to leave their homes and are eligible for the vaccine, the state has a Homebound Hoosier program using the EMS network to administer vaccines in homes.

Residents of Dearborn, Ohio, Ripley and Switzerland counties should call 812.432.6200 or 800.742.5001.

Residents of Franklin and Union counties should call 765.966.1795 or 800.589.1121.
