Correctional Staff Prioritized Over Inmates In Vaccination Plans

Phase in which states plan to vaccinate inmates and correctional staff

Notes: Phases in this graphic are defined according to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. States whose vaccine rollout plans do not explicitly conform to the CDC guidelines have been assigned to the phase that best aligns with the state’s policy language for prisoners or staff or its definitions of essential workers and higher-risk populations. Each state’s phases may not be directly comparable, and wait time depends on the number of people in earlier phases.
