• Vaccine update:
– Who? People in Phase 1A (healthcare workers, long-term care facilities, workers in emergency
services) and people 75 and older. The supply is not flowing as steadily as we had hoped back when we predicted we would be able to move to 65+ by February 1, and as supply increases, vaccine will be more readily available to additional groups.
