The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the State of Michigan have established a prioritized list of who will get the vaccine and in what order. Here is the current order, as determined by the State of Michigan, in order of priority:
Phase 1A includes persons serving in health care settings who have direct or indirect exposure to patients or infectious materials and are unable to work from home, as well as residents of long-term care facilities.
Phase 1B includes persons 65 years of age or older, school teachers, and workers in essential and critical industries, including workers with unique skill sets such as nonhospital or non-public health laboratories and mortuary services.
Phase 1C includes people at high risk for severe COVID-19 illness due to underlying medical conditions.
Phase 2 is a mass vaccination campaign for all adults.
