While everyone in the broader group will be eligible starting next week, vaccine providers will be able to prioritize previously eligible populations such as essential workers and those with pre-existing conditions.
Also today, the state Department of Health Services (DHS) announced that nearly 600 new pharmacy locations will soon be offering COVID-19 vaccines.
