Who can get vaccinated?

Because the U.S. supply of COVID-19 vaccine is expected to be limited at first, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) issues guidance to CDC providing recommendations to federal, state, and local governments about who should be vaccinated first. According to the CDC, these following groups of people should be vaccinated:

Healthcare personnel and residents of long-term care facilities should be offered the first doses of COVID-19 vaccines (1a)

Although the CDC has issued these recommendations, each state has its own plan for deciding who will be vaccinated first and how it will be distributed. Contact your local health department for more information on COVID-19 vaccination distribution in your area.
