Allocation of Phase 1B vaccine is planned for multiple enrolled vaccine providers such as health departments, hospitals, Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers, primary care practitioners, and pharmacies. The exact distribution has not been determined and providers will be phased in as vaccine supply increases.
