When Will the COVID-19 Vaccines be Available Throughout the United States?January 2021

The CDC and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices have released recommendations as to who should be vaccinated first. These recommendations should help guide in the distribution of the initial limited supplies of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Although the CDC indicates who should be offered the COVID-19 vaccine first–each state has its own plan to prioritize, distribute, and allocate the vaccine to its citizens. As more vaccines are released for use in the US, and the supply of vaccines increases, several thousand vaccination locations will become available–such as doctors’ offices, retail pharmacies, hospitals, and federally qualified health centers. Please contact your state health department for more information on its plan for the COVID-19 vaccination.
