- Health and school officials in Indiana say vaccinations there are going very well. They're hosting a weekend mass vaccination event, offering the one shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine in a mobile unit supplied by the state. Gary's Health Commissioner explains why that makes a big difference for some people.

ROLAND WALKER: The mobile unit allows them to move around the state and do large events at places like high schools. So today, with the Johnson & Johnson, not only does it allow us to do large events like this, but it allows us to vaccinate homeless population and homebound population. So the Johnson & Johnson is a really exciting addition to our vaccination.

- As of today, more than 2.3 million doses of vaccine have been administered so far in Indiana.
