Where can I get the vaccine? Your healthcare provider and state/local public health agency are the place to start. Select groups may get the vaccine where they work.
Where am I in the priority list? You can use a vaccine calculator to get a rough idea of where you stand. State and sometimes local public health authorities determine priority.
How many people are getting vaccinated? The Bloomberg tracker shows distribution progress. Actual vaccination is lagging behind production and distribution to states. There have been challenges with organizing distribution, and some eligible people have refused vaccination.
What about side effects? Many people will experience mild flu-like symptoms after getting the vaccine. This is normal and usually lasts a day or two. Serious allergic reactions are rare and easily treatable. Let your provider know if you have a history of allergic reactions to vaccinations. Ordinary allergies are not a problem.
Who shouldn’t be vaccinated? Your healthcare provider will tell you if you shouldn’t be vaccinated due to specific health conditions. There is not yet a vaccine approved for children under age 16.
