COVID-19 Vaccination Phases


COVID-19 vaccination will take a phased approach. Phase 1 has started with limited doses. These  early doses will be given to people working in health care settings who are at the highest risk for COVID-19 exposure and residents of long-term care facilities. Other groups that may get some of the earlier doses in phase 1 are essential workers, adults with high-risk medical conditions, older adults (65 years and older), and some adults living in congregate settings like group homes.
