The Department of Homeland Security states that key workers are those needed to maintain the state or national infrastructure. Critical state and national infrastructure includes security, economic, or public health systems.

The vaccinated list includes first responders, grocery and food service workers, childcare and school employees, food processing, large aviation factories, transport workers, and other risks. Includes workers who perform their duties on a regular basis in high environments. These jobs include retail, agriculture, supply of critical services and materials related to coronavirus responses, the United States Postal Service, and the Automobile Authority.

Different counties have their own way to sign up for a vaccine. The county’s health department may have registration sheets for Johnson County, Shawnee County, Wyandotte County, etc. According to Lawrence Journal-World, all 500 Phase 2 slots were acquired in Douglas County within minutes. The employer can also contact the employee about the vaccine application.

Supply is still limited. Vaccines may be given in various locations, such as pharmacies and clinics, when higher doses are available. However, these locations are unaware of logistics and seek information from public health authorities.

Both the Pfizer vaccine and the modelna vaccine are given twice. For more information on both vaccines, please visit the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC states that the Covid-19 vaccine has undergone rigorous research to ensure that it is as safe as possible. If you have any questions about getting vaccinated, talk to your healthcare provider.
