When can I get a vaccine?

Pennsylvania is using a phased vaccine approach. Because vaccine supply may be limited initially, efforts will focus on vaccinating essential healthcare workers, staff and residents of long-term care facilities, EMS workers, persons age 65 and older, and those age 16-64 with high-risk conditions. As vaccine supply increases, the vaccine will be made available to other critical populations and then to the general public. Additional information can be found here.
