The state-run health service also said that 2.1 million people, or 4% of the population, have had a second dose and nearly 95% of people aged over 60 have been vaccinated.

Over 77% of doses administered have been the Pfizer jab.

When the school staff vaccination effort is complete, police, firefighters, corrections officers, grocery store employees and food and agricultural workers will be next in line for the Johnson & Johnson vaccines, Wolf said.

The Indiana Department of Health announced that starting Monday, March 22, Hoosiers ages 40 and older will be eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. It also said fully vaccinated people could gather indoors with unvaccinated people "from a single household who are at low risk for severe Covid-19", without masks or distancing.

The seven day average of daily new cases is 146, or 11.9 per 100,000.

Research has shown immunity following natural infection with Covid-19 remains for at least eight months - "we have every expectation the vaccine immunity will be even longer", the ministry website states.

Total 18,16,161 vaccine doses were given till 7 pm today, the 63rd day of nationwide COVID-19 vaccination.

Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield said the tool also provided more information about who is in each group.

Several provinces are redoubling COVID-19 vaccination efforts today, offering shots to broader swaths of the population.

China, with 1.4 billion people, has a much lower rate of vaccination than many other countries.

As of february 21, about 87.5% of vaccinated people received their second shot on time. "We should take the vaccine available to us because both are equally effective in terms of efficacy and long-term protection". A second dose would not be expected to confer immunity within that time.

Wolf has said the state is making progress in the state's vaccine distribution but the supply remains well below the demand.
