Pharmacies continue to administer vaccinations at long-term care facilities around the state. Thousands of residents and employees at those facilities have already been vaccinated and first-dose vaccinations are complete at 22 of those facilities.


Independent licensed healthcare professionals and staff who are part of Phase 1a continue to be vaccinated at area hospitals. Independent healthcare organizations that have not yet arranged for vaccinations are asked to complete this survey to facilitate the logistical planning for the vaccination of their high-risk workers.
