INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — With a million more Hoosiers newly eligible to get the coronavirus vaccine, long wait times for appointments are happening at some locations.

At a few sites, there’s no availability at all.

The statewide portal feels like changes minute by minute as time slots get taken and new ones are released.

“It was a little bit tricky on the interface,” said Paul Cook, who got his vaccine shot Wednesday.

He went almost 20 miles from home to get a spot sooner.

“I could have waited until the end of April to have gotten it one-half mile from where I live, but I didn’t want to wait that long,” Cook said.

News 8 checked several different ZIP codes in the statewide portal.

There are 16 locations within a 10-mile radius. At the top was the mass vaccination site at the Speedway. The first available appointment there: April 25.

Other sites’ next appointments available were much later; those included IU Health’s Neuroscience Building in downtown Indianapolis: May 4.

The clinic at Adult & Child Health on Southern Avenue was among several with no availability.

Even while researching, two locations disappeared, likely from a lack of available appointments.
