COVID-19 Vaccination Plan Graphics

The following graphics provide an overview of the state’s COVID-19 vaccination plan and timelines for phases 1A and 1B in Humboldt County.

COVID-19 Vaccine Plan

The State of California is currently following a national vaccination plan outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in October. The federal plan breaks vaccination down into three phases, based on the supply of vaccine available. The U.S. is currently in Phase 1A of the three-phase process, when COVID-19 vaccine is relatively scarce. Experts project that it will take at least six to nine months to move through all three phases of this vaccination plan, depending on supply chains. States are implementing their own COVID-19 vaccination plans, consistent with the CDC plan guidelines.

The State’s current Phase 1 vaccine plan is posted on the State’s COVID-19 website. It states, “After healthcare workers and long-term care residents, the next to be vaccinated will be individuals who have higher risk for severe disease or death (due to age or other factors), who are unable to work at home, who live or work in geographic areas that have been highly impacted or who are most likely to spread disease to other workers or to the public.”

A statement from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) on COVID-19 vaccine planning: “The CDPH has convened a Drafting Guidelines Workgroup, which is leveraging national prioritization frameworks and reviewing data regarding occupational exposure and COVID risk to prioritize sectors across phases and tiered population groups. Counties will follow these guidelines in administering vaccine.

“However, given the number of people falling into the various tiers in a specific county, the uptake of those in the priority group in getting vaccinated, and the logistics and timeline for use of the vaccine so that no doses go to waste, counties may be in different tiers in administering vaccine to their population.”

Distribution Phases

  • Phase 1A includes healthcare workers and long-term care residents.
  • Phase 1B includes those ages 65+, those in congregate settings (including incarcerated and homeless populations) and some essential workforce sectors.
  • Phase 1C includes individuals ages 50+, those age 16-64 with increased risk of severe COVID-19 illness and additional critical infrastructure workforce.
  • The vaccine will not be available to the general population until Phase 2, when vaccine supply is expected to have increased substantially.
