The Indiana Department of Health said today that 2,863 additional Hoosiers have been diagnosed with COVID-19 through testing, bringing to 886,461 the number of Indiana residents now known to have had the novel coronavirus following corrections to the previous day's dashboard.

To date, 14,172 Hoosiers are confirmed to have died from COVID-19, the state health department said in a statement. It said another 451 probable deaths have been reported to date based on clinical diagnoses in patients for whom no positive test is on record.

A total of 3,995,480 unique individuals have been tested in Indiana, up from 3,960,242 on Friday, the statement said. It said 12,598,831 tests, including repeat tests for unique individuals, have been reported to the state since Feb. 26, 2020.

Hoosiers ages 12 and older can receive a COVID-19 vaccine; individuals younger than age 18 are eligible only for the Pfizer vaccine. To find a vaccination clinic near you, visit https://ourshot.in.gov or call 211 if you do not have access to a computer or require assistance. Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are accepted at most sites.

IU Health offers free Lyft rides to any vaccine site in the state, the statement said. If you need transportation to your vaccine appointment, call 1-888-IUHEALTH (888-484-3258) and choose option 9.

The department will be deploying mobile vaccination clinics to Allen and DeKalb counties this week. Many locations will include free COVID-19 testing. Hoosiers in those ZIP codes will receive a text message or email with information of the location and services offered.

As of today, 6,292,143 doses have been administered in Indiana, the statement said. This includes 3,156,416 first doses and 3,135,727 individuals who are fully vaccinated. The fully vaccinated number represents those who have received a second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines and those who received the single Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
