Indiana will receive about $60.8 million in federal funds aimed at expanding vaccination equity, according to a news release from the Centers for Disease Control.

The funds will be used with an eye to encouraging vaccination and ensuring equity and access to vaccines for communities that COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted. The money will help programs such as door-to-door outreach to raise awareness about vaccinations or help people sign up to be vaccinated.

The money is part of a $3 billion purse distributed among 64 jurisdictions.
