State Vaccination Plans

Different States, Different Strategies

When U.S. COVID-19 vaccine distribution began in mid-December 2020, all 50 states placed health care workers and residents and staff of long-term care facilities (LTCF) at the front of their lines to receive vaccinations. But state strategies quickly diverged after that. Without a federal mandate, some chose teachers to go next in line. Some prioritized people over 65. And others bestowed the privilege on essential workers. Despite the differences, most states had vaccinated the highest priority groups by the end of April 2021 and moved on to inviting everyone over 16 years of age to be vaccinated. By May, more than 100 million people in the United States were fully vaccinated.
