Halifax Health Vaccination Prioritization

Halifax Health, the community’s health system, is committed to supporting the entire community as COVID-19 vaccines become available.  In following CDC and state guidelines, we have prepared the following prioritization for vaccine usage.  We anticipate our first shipment of vaccines to arrive next week.

Frontline healthcare workers and first responders are the first to be vaccinated.  After these individuals have received the vaccine, it is our intent to provide vaccinations for the public we serve on a daily basis.  We will update this site as information and vaccines become available from the state.
