The vaccine has been approved and the first doses have begun to be distributed. At this time, our understanding it that it will be given to hospital workers and residents of elderly congregate living facilities and nursing homes. Because storing the vaccine requires special cold-storage equipment, it will almost certainly be available, at least initially, through larger organizations like Cottage Hospital or the County health care clinics. At this time, private offices like Jackson Medical Group do not have access to the vaccine or the ability to properly store it. We will keep our website updated as we receive information about who can get the vaccine and where.
