Health care workers, “essential” workers, those age 65 and older, and those with underlying health conditions – up to perhaps 250 million people – will be prioritized for receiving the vaccine.
The guidelines would prioritize health-care workers, essential personnel and vulnerable Americans, such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions.
Link to CDC presentation. Optimistically sees up to 35-45 million doses available about end of year. No estimate on how long it will take to reach the higher numbers. But eyeballing those numbers, it looks like we may be stuck at home through mid 2021 – even though I turn 62 next year, we miss the age 65 cut off. Even better, Medicare is said to be bankrupt the year before I qualify 🙂
