The supply of COVID-19 vaccine is limited, and the Indiana Department of Health (IDOH) makes these decisions based on information and advice from scientists and other experts. IDOH also considers recommendations by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and several state advisory committees.
Recommendations are made with these goals in mind:
- Decrease death and serious disease as much as possible
- Make sure our society can continue to function
- Reduce the burden COVID-19 is having on people already facing disparities
