While frontline agriculture and food processing workers who must work in close proximity to others became eligible on March 1, vaccine supply remains a limiting factor and the available supply for this group is focused on individuals in work settings where social distancing is not feasible. Additionally, all other eligible groups like health care workers and those 65 and older remain a higher priority.
Eligible agriculture and food processing workers may be able to locate the closest or most convenient such provider through www.vaccinefinder.org supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
