Updated Vaccine Priority List

Illustration by Peter Hamlin

You can only get the shot if you are designated 1A.
You can get the shot if you are a health care worker.
You can get the shot if you fly an airplane.
You can get the shot if you live/work in a nursing home.
You can get the shot if you work in a restaurant.
If you are clever and devious enough to cut the line.
You can get the shot if you are tech-savvy and can navigate the confusing options and contradictory websites in order to score an appointment time.
Are you are old enough?


You can only get the shot if you are 1B.
You can get the shot if you are willing and able to travel for hours to a location where shots are being given.
You can get the shot if you have diabetes.
You can get the shot if you have a heart condition.
Only get the shot if you believe the shot is worth getting.


You can get the shot if you wait your turn.
You can get the shot if you have liver disease.
Corrections officers and law enforcement step this way, please.
First responders, appointments are available.
You can get the shot if you are a teacher.
You can get the shot if you are homeless or work in a homeless shelter.
Pulmonary disease. Kidney disease.
Neurologic conditions.


Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.

You can get the shot if you are a transit worker.
Shots are available if you work in a public-facing profession.
You can only get the shot if we get more shots to give.
You can only get the shot if only there is a viable plan to give the shots.
You can only get the shot if you know you can get the shot.
You can get the shot if you want one.
You can get the shot.
