How is the vaccination process going in Indiana?
President Joe Biden had plans to have 75% of eligible Americans vaccinated against the coronavirus by July 4.
According to the Mayo Clinic, 47.5% of Americans are fully vaccinated, while 55% have received at least one dose.
Over 83% of Americans over the age of 65 are fully vaccinated, and just over 52% ages 18-64 have received full doses as well.
According to Indiana’s COVID-19 website – ourshot.in.gov – the majority of the state is blue, meaning less than 10 new cases per week per 100,000 residents. Only six of Indiana’s 92 counties are in the yellow, the next-highest level above blue.

Tyson Foods has recalled approximately 8.5 million pounds of frozen, cooked chicken products due to a possible listeria contamination, according to USA Today.

Each product has an establishment code P-7089.
A list of affected products is posted to the Tyson Foods website, according to a news release.
The voluntary recall comes after three people became ill after eating the Tyson products. Two cases were in Texas and the other in Delaware.
