  • Individuals who are immunocompromised 
  • People 65 years and older  
  • Residents of long term care facilities 
  • People aged 50-64 with underlying medical conditions  
  • People aged 18-49 with underlying medical conditions  
  • People aged 18-64 who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure or transmission because of jobs or institutional settings

These eligible groups may be expanded as more data on protection from the vaccine becomes available.
