Teachers and other school employees became eligible Monday for COVID-19 vaccinations through shot clinics across Indiana.
State health officials said last week that the eligibility expansion comes at the direction of the Biden administration, which earlier allowed teachers to be vaccinated at pharmacies taking part in a federal program.
Indiana previously only allowed anyone aged 50 and older and those with at-risk health conditions to make vaccine appointments. The expansion for teachers now includes educators up to grade 12, as well as other school workers such as classroom aides, bus drivers, cafeteria workers and substitute teachers.
