How is it decided who is a priority for the vaccine?

The Maine CDC controls the plan for the vaccination of Maine’s population. At this time, the Maine COVID-19 Vaccination Plan identifies four phases since there are a limited number of COVID-19 vaccine doses available – this supply should increase in 2021. We do not have a date for when we will receive all our doses or when we will transition to each phase.

At this time, we are vaccinating Phase 1A and Phase 1B as defined by the Maine CDC which includes healthcare workers, first responders, and community members 70 and over.
