The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that healthcare workers and residents in long-term care facilities be offered the vaccine first in phase 1a, followed by older adults age 75 and older and front-line essential workers in phase 1b, and older adults age 65 to 74 and individuals 16 and older with underlying conditions in phase 1c. As health care workers and residents in long-term care facilities receive their first dose of the vaccine, below are some resources to keep you and your clients informed about its implementation as it continues to roll out.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
The CDC provides a package of informational resources, including facts about the vaccine, its safety, dissemination and supply, cost, what to expect when getting vaccinated, and its benefits. The CDC also outlines What to Expect at Your Appointment to Get Vaccinated for COVID-19.
The CDC provides answers to frequently asked questions about the vaccination, including what to continue doing to protect yourself and others against COVID-19 as the first priority groups receive their vaccination. The CDC also has additional facts about the vaccine on their website to assist in the distribution of accurate vaccine information.
