Tracking the coronavirus vaccine, state by state

“…The charts below reflect each state’s priority groups as described so far by the states. Some have specified only the very first recipients while others have given longer priority lists. The estimated population in each group removes overlap, such as medical workers with pre-existing conditions, as estimated by Ariadne Labs and Surgo Ventures based on state priority lists collected by The Post. The Post is collecting how many vaccines have been administered in states that are reporting it…” Use the search feature to identify the state you live in. An example is DC – and the information provided is: “District of Columbia is expected to get about 18,000 doses in the first set of Pfizer vaccines, and a total of 35,000 of the Pfizer and Moderna doses before the end of the year. That is enough to vaccinate 4.9 percent of the state population. The state has approximately 59,000 health-care workers and 4,900 nursing home residents and workers, and the number of doses expected in December is enough to give 54 percent of them a single dose by the end of the year. The vaccine requires a follow-up booster about three or four weeks after the first shot. The District of Columbia has rolled out its vaccine distribution in three phases. First in line are hospital staff, front-line health-care personnel, emergency services providers, and long-term and home health-care workers, including those who work in nursing homes and ancillary care facilities. After that, the District’s health department plans to vaccinate those 65 years or older, and residents of nursing homes, transitional housing, homeless shelters and correctional facilities. Essential workers including grocery store employees, child-care providers, teachers, and law enforcement will also be prioritized in the initial phase…”
