Georgia, Indiana and Texas all announced Tuesday that those 16 and older will now be eligible to get the COVID-19 shot.

Georgia residents will be eligible starting Thursday, with Texas residents eligible starting Friday and those who live in Indiana eligible starting March 31.

The states join West Virginia, Alaska, Utah and Mississippi as the only states where all adults are eligible to receive shots.

President Joe Biden has called on states to make vaccinations available to anyone over 16 who wants one.

The administration says there will be enough doses to inoculate every adult by the end of May, but warns Americans that they are getting in line by May 1, not necessarily getting a shot on that day.

Other states are announcing their plans to expand vaccine eligibility. Tennessee will open up vaccinations to all residents 16 and older beginning on April 5.

Roughly one-quarter of the U.S. population has received at least one shot, The New York Times is reporting. Around 14% of the country’s population is fully vaccinated.

Several states are allowing those 50 and older to register for a vaccine, while most states are vaccinating those 16 and older who have medical conditions that would make them more likely to contract COVID-19 or more likely to have a bad outcome from the virus.
