INDIANAPOLIS (WAVE) – A total of 9,432 people in Indiana have died from COVID-19, according to the Indiana State Department of Health.

As of Tuesday morning, there had been 614,946 cases reported in the state, with 1,777 new cases and 80 new deaths.

On Jan. 21, Gov. Eric Holcomb announced changes to Indiana’s vaccine rollout plan. People ages 60 to 64 will now have to wait due to a limited supply of the vaccine.

Right now, Indiana is getting about 80,000 doses each week, but that doesn’t come close to meeting the demand. Currently, the 70 to 79 age group is still being vaccinated.

A total of 459,701 Hoosiers have either received or been scheduled for a vaccine.
