A federal advisory committee to the CDC voted Tuesday to recommend who should get COVID-19 vaccines first once one is authorized for use. The 14 voting members of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, along with representatives from federal science agencies and the health care industry, voted during an emergency meeting online to recommend that the first COVID-19 vaccines should go to health care workers and residents of long-term care facilities, including nursing homes and assisted living. The CDC estimates that most people in these high-priority groups could be fully vaccinated by early next year if the FDA authorizes a vaccine by mid-December, as is currently anticipated.
