In recent weeks, vaccine eligibility has expanded, allowing shots to be available to everyone age 16 and older. Most states have announced plans to meet or beat President Biden’s goal of universal adult eligibility by May 1.
For the past several months, health care workers and residents of long-term care facilities have been eligible for vaccination in every state for months, and people 65 and older have been eligible for several weeks in most states.
The tables below show who is eligible for vaccinations in each state, by health status — age and high-risk residents — and eligibility by occupation in addition to health care workers and long-term care residents. Some counties may delay or pause eligibility for certain groups even after a state expands access. Data as recent as March 30, 2021.
