See what phase you are in for the vaccine 1

Phase 1B of Covid vaccine distribution would include people ages 75 and older and frontline essential workers.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released recommendations last Sunday for who should be included in phases 1B and 1C of Covid vaccine distribution.

Phase 1B would be for people ages 75 and older and frontline essential workers, including firefighters, police, teachers, food and agriculture workers, corrections workers, U.S. Postal Service workers, public transit workers and grocery store workers, among others.

Phase 1C includes people ages 65 to 74, people ages 16 to 64 with high-risk medical conditions and other essential workers, including transportation workers, food service, finance and media, among others.

Long-term care facility residents and healthcare personnel were included in Phase 1A.

Gov. Cuomo said Monday “we follow federal advice” on the phases.

Cuomo said 38,000 people in New York State have been vaccinated.

“We have already distributed more vaccines and our hospitals have vaccinated more people than any state in the nation,” he said.

Cuomo said the state expects to have received 630,000 doses by this week. He said priority populations will expand, including federally qualified health center workers, EMTs, coroners, medical examiners, miners, funeral home workers, and other congregate care workers and residents.

And where will these vaccinations be given? And who will tell us when it's our turn to get it?

Live in Queens and see Hillcrest HS will be giving the vaccine. I called, got a recording about student and school. No button to push for anything about the vaccine. My Husband Mel & I are 78 years old. Husband had a Kidney Removed with a Tumor removed. Diagnosed with Parkinsons a few months ago. I have 10 Heart Stents and other Medical Conditions. Hoping they do it by appointment. Cannot be standing in the cold. I have called all over and not one person knows anything. The only thing I am sure of is the way this whole procedure for getting the vaccine has been a disaster. We need some help and not months from now. Hoping this is taken seriously. Have not seen my family in over 1 year.
