With federal authorization of the first vaccines meant to help prevent COVID-19, Wyoming has begun the process of administering the COVID-19 vaccine. With limited initial availability, the state is using a phased approach. Phase 1 is when vaccines are in limited supply and are being allocated for administration to specific populations. A list of prioritized populations for Phases 1a, 1b and 1c of the COVID-19 vaccine campaign can be found here.
Most counties are currently in Phase 1b. This generally includes people who are 65 years of age or older, and frontline essential workers who must interact with the public and are unable to consistently physically distance from others. Pre-registration information for these priority groups as well as county-level status updates are available from the Wyoming Department of Health.
Additional details about the priority groups and county-specific registration information is also available by calling 1-800-438-5795.
