Disclaimer: The following information details vaccine availability in real-time. Please keep in mind that vaccine availability is subject to change quickly due to limited supplies. 


MDHHS recommends that staff providing vaccination clinics to others be vaccinated before they begin participating in clinics.

While there is not currently data on the safety and efficacy of Pfizer’s or Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccines in pregnant women, the CDC has recommended that pregnant women may be offered the vaccine within the priority group they fit in, upon consultation with their medical provider.

Phase 1A:

Paid and unpaid persons serving in health care settings who have the potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients or infectious materials and are unable to work from home as well as residents in long-term care facilities.

  • Priority One: Keep critical health care infrastructure open and functioning (i.e., hospitals, critical care units, and emergency medical response systems) through vaccination of staff who perform direct patient care and work in critical areas including:
    • Group A: Emergency medical service providers, including medical first responders
    • Group B: General medical floor
    • Group C: Emergency department
    • Group D: Intensive care units
  • Priority Two: Prevent outbreaks and protect residents in long-term care facilities.
    Group A: Vaccinate workers who have direct contact with large number of vulnerable residents. Note: this would include staff who come in and out of the buildings.
    • Skilled nursing facility staff
    • Psychiatric hospital staff
    • Homes for aged staff
    • Adult foster care centers staff
    • Assisted living facility staff
    • Home health care workers caring for high risk clients with large patient loads (e.g. people with a tracheostomy/ventilator at home) Group
    • Skilled nursing facility residents
    • Psychiatric hospitals patients
    • Homes for aged residents
    • Adult foster care centers residents
    • Assisted living facility residents
  • Priority Three: Keep necessary health care infrastructure functioning.
    • Group A: Vaccinate workers with direct patient contact who conduct high risk procedures (e.g., dentists, endoscopy, dialysis).
    • Group B: Vaccinate other workers who have direct patient contact, including outpatient, urgent care, ambulatory care, and home health care.
    • Group C: Vaccinate workers with specialized skills critical to health care system functioning who have indirect patient contact (e.g. hospital and public health laboratories, pharmacy, and medical waste handlers).

Phase 1B

Persons 75 years of age or older and frontline essential workers in critical infrastructure.

  • Group A: Persons 75 years of age or older not covered in Phase 1A. This includes those in a congregate setting that were not reached in Phase 1A.
  • Group B: Prioritized frontline workers whose work role has frequent or intense exposure, and, due to the nature of the work, are not able to maintain social distance. For example, a first responder may have to physically touch other people in their response, and a child care provider cannot maintain social distance from children when caring for their physical needs. The specific prioritized categories are:
    • Pre-Kindergarten through high school teachers, support staff and child care workers who usually have direct contact with children
    • First responders not covered in Phase 1A (e.g., firefighters, police, conservation officers, inspectors)
    • Corrections workers (e,g,, staff in prisons, jails, juvenile justice facilities)
    • Workers in homeless shelters, congregate child care institutions, and adult and child protective services
  • Group C: Other frontline essential workers in sectors essential to the functioning of society and at substantially higher risk of exposure to SARS-CoV-2 because their work related duties must be performed on site and involve being in close proximity (i.e., within 6 feet) to the public or to coworkers.Frontline essential workers in critical infrastructures include by ACIP are:
    • Food and agriculture workers
    • Critical manufacturing workers
    • Public transit workers
    • Grocery store workers
    • U.S. Postal Service workers
    • Workers with unique skill sets not covered above, such as non-hospital laboratories and mortuary services

If further sub-prioritization is needed of frontline essential workers due to limited vaccine supply, local health departments may consider prioritizing workers in locations of their jurisdiction where high rates of transmission and/or outbreaks have occurred and/or workers who are at increased risk for severe illness based on age or underlying medical conditions.

Phase 1C

Individuals age 16 years or older at high risk of severe illness due to COVID-19 infection and some other essential workers whose position impacts life, safety, and
protection during the COVID-19 response.

  • Group A: Individuals age 65 to 74 years. This includes those in congregate settings that were not reached in prior Phases.
  • Group B: Individuals age 16 to 64 years with COPD, hypertension, chronic kidney disease, heart disease, diabetes, obesity or other conditions that puts them at high risk of negative COVID-19 outcome.Some other essential workers whose work must be performed on site, not covered in prior Phases, will also likely be vaccinated during this phase most likely in the summer. MDHHS will adapt this guidance as vaccine availability becomes clearer.

By Jan. 11, 2021, all areas of the state may, as vaccine supplies are available, implement vaccination of people who are health care workers or working or residing in long-term care facilities (Phase 1A Priority One and Three), age 65 years or older (Phase 1 B Group A and Phase 1C Group A), or frontline workers whose work role has frequent or intense exposure, and, due to the nature of the work, are not able to maintain social distance (including frontline responders, school and child care staff, or corrections staff) (Phase 1B Group B). Vaccination will take place in different phases that occurs simultaneously.
