To be decided later: Initial efforts are likely to focus on front line hospital workers/all first responders followed by nursing home residents & then all those over 60 with medical conditions. Those with other medical conditions under 60 would eventually be in line for the initial available stock of vaccine. Moderna & other vaccines will likely be readily available to all by next summer (many will refuse it)

COVID 19 vaccines: Although the CDC has made some preliminary recommendations for priorities with COVID 19 vaccinations, we still await formal directives in this country.
