Federal Vaccine Guidelines

Learn about federal essential worker guidelines and vaccine resources

We have created a streamlined vaccination distribution guide to support you in understanding federal and state guidance for vaccine prioritization and how essential workers are classified in the process. It also includes some guidance on eligibility for receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

The information provided below is intended solely as a reference tool for you. It is not medical advice nor is it a guarantee of eligibility for or access to a vaccine. Decisions about vaccine eligibility and availability are made by state or local jurisdictions. Please visit your state’s Vaccine Eligibility and Guidelines page for more details or contact your healthcare provider.

Note: The information below is subject to change and may not be current. This guide was last updated on January 29, 2021.
