  • First responders (police, firefighters, mergency transport)
  • K to 12 educational staff
  • Child care staff
  • Grocery store workers

If you are a front-line priority worker, do not call your local health authority. All AstraZeneca/SII COVISHIELD (AZ/SII) vaccine appointments will be organized by employers. Appointment information will be communicated clearly and directly to each sector and employer.
