Healthcare workers and those who are high risk such as elderly in nursing homes are getting first priority to the vaccine.
State health secretary Doctor Rachel Levine says the next phase is 1-b which means frontline workers and inmates and prison staff members are next in line.
The general population would be last to get the vaccine.
The Department Of Corrections released a statement, saying:
“We are currently working hand in hand with the department of health regarding the covid vaccine, and we have no further information. Beyond what dr. Levine has already provided.”
