How to find out where and when you can get a COVID vaccine in your state

January 16, 2021, 12:00 PM UTC

COVID vaccine distribution in the U.S. has been a bit of a mess so far. The available doses of the Pfizer and Moderna coronavirus vaccines, currently the only two in the country to have received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) emergency authorization, are limited, and allocation depends on a host of factors.

The vast majority of Americans aren’t yet eligible to get either of the vaccines. Given the constrained supply and the massive scope of the vaccination campaign, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has recommended that long-term-care facility patients, people above a certain age, and frontline health care workers and their staff be the first tranche to get their shots. But, despite that guidance, states have wide discretion in how they choose to dole out the doses. The result: California may have one set of rules, Florida a different set, and New York yet another. Further complicating matters, many states’ rules have changed as the process progresses.

Given the fluid and disparate nature of these state and local strategies, the best place to go for information about whether you qualify for a COVID vaccine, or where you may be able to get one, is your state’s public health agency. Below, a state-by-state link to the latest posted information, FAQs, and advice on COVID vaccines from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
