 That includes workers age 18 and over in:

  • Schools (teachers, teacher assistants or support workers, school bus drivers, front-facing administrative workers, daytime janitors)
  • Day homes and day cares
  • Hotels
  • Grocery stores
  • Drugstores
  • Banks
  • Libraries
  • Postal service
  • Liquor stores
  • Gas stations and convenience stores
  • Customer service agents at airports
  • Media (reporters and camera crews)

Previously announced priority populations can also still book their vaccine appointments if they have not already.
