How will COVID vaccines be given out? Who will qualify in each phase?

There will initially be a limited supply of COVID vaccine available. Therefore, Missourians will qualify for vaccination based on priority phases. Within each phase, each group will have access to vaccine at different times. For example, in phase 1A, healthcare workers will have access to the vaccine before high-risk populations.

Specific criteria for who will be eligible to be vaccinated at each phase will be clearly communicated once that information is available. Specific definitions within each priority group are subject to change based on guidelines from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
