Anyone 16 and older can now get the coronavirus vaccine in Mississippi.

Starting today, the state is dropping eligibility restrictions.

It comes about a month and a half before President Biden says all adults nationwide should have access to the vaccine.

Mississippi is the second state to open up availability to all adults. Alaska became the first last week.
