WDH Expands Vaccine Eligibility
The Wyoming Department of Health recently updated the state's vaccine priority groups to be more in line with national guidance while also rolling out new pre-registration and information options.
WDH is offering an online pre-registration form to make it easy for priority populations to pre-register for vaccination, with pre-registration is now open for those 65 and older.
Those who are unable to visit the website for details about the priority groups or for county-specific information can call the WDH toll-free vaccine phone line at 800-438-5795.
The overall Phase 1 plan describes three general groupings for early vaccine eligibility:
- Phase 1a includes healthcare providers, first responders, long-term care facility staff, and others at high risk for exposure to COVID-19.
- Phase 1b now focuses on some frontline essential workers, individuals 65 and over, and individuals with certain medical conditions.
- Phase 1c includes homeless individuals, people living in congregate settings, and other essential workers as defined by the federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.
