COVID-19 Vaccinations Prioritized Populations: Those most at risk get it first.

A tested, safe and effective vaccine will be available to all who want it, but supplies will be limited at first. Independent state and federal public health advisory committees have determined that the best way to fight COVID-19 is to start first with vaccinations for those most at risk, reaching more people as the vaccine supply increases from January to June. Keep practicing the 3W’s— wear a mask, wait six feet apart, wash your hands—until everyone has a chance to vaccinate.
