CURRENT: Phase 1B Tier 1
- Vaccine remains in short supply. This means not everyone in Phase 1B will be able to get vaccine right away. To help balance vaccine supply with the Phase 1B demands, IDPH has implemented a tiered prioritization, outlined below.
- Linn County is now vaccinating Phase 1B Tier 1. Populations in Tier 1 include individuals 65+, first responders (e.g., police officers, firefighters, child welfare social workers), PK-12 school staff, early childhood education, and childcare workers.
- Linn county is sub-prioritizing these populations within Tier 1, in the order previously listed, due to the limited vaccine supply. The individuals in these populations may receive vaccine when their sub-prioritized group is eligible during Phase 1B, and in future phases of vaccine rollout.
- We will continue to ensure Phase 1A long term care residents and healthcare workers that have not received their vaccine will continue to be a priority for vaccination.
All Eligible Populations
- Health Care Personnel (Phase 1A)
- Long-Term Care Resident (Phase 1A)
- Adult 65+ (Phase 1B)
- First Responder (Phase 1B)
- PK-12 School Staff and Childcare Worker (Phase 1B)
NEXT: Phase 1B, Tiers 2-5
LATER: Phase 1C
The CDC has recommended priority populations for Phase 1C, however the state has not made a recommendation for Phase 1C priority populations at this time.
