At least 1 million people have been receiving their first dose of coronavirus vaccine almost every day of the past week as the nation nears the goal of 20 million at least partially vaccinated three weeks after the initial deadline of December. The states and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said just over 10 million people received vaccinations in the first month of the program, but the pace is accelerating in the second month. President Joe Biden has announced a goal of maintaining a pace of 1 million people per day for the first 100 days in office, but some have said that his goal should be higher.

Note: The prioritized population includes everyone the state has identified so far as a priority. State's population includes people ages 15 and under who are not yet eligible.

A month into coronavirus vaccination nationwide, many states have widened the range of people eligible to receive shots. Supplies of vaccines allocated to states, however, are far below the number of eligible people. There are enough vaccines for just over a third of the prioritized population.

Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require a follow-up shot three or four weeks after the first dose. Allocation data displayed here is for the first dose. Vaccines that are expected to be delivered for the second dose are not included.

Most states have adopted CDC guidelines and are prioritizing health-care workers and nursing home residents and staff. Next up are front-line essential workers, including first responders, teachers, day-care staff, grocery store workers and prison guards, and adults 75 and over, the latest CDC federal guidance recommends. Third in line are those with preexisting conditions such as diabetes, heart problems or obesity, and adults between 65 and 74. The National Academy of Sciences and a CDC advisory committee spent several months crafting recommendations that would stop the spread of the disease and offset health inequities.

States have discretion in setting their own vaccination priorities. Some are prioritizing people who received placebos in completed vaccination studies, or are vaccinating the elderly before a bevy of first responders.

Methodology

The number of vaccines allocated to each state and the count of doses distributed are from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The count of doses administered is from the CDC or from the states when more current information is available there.

The national and state counts of the prioritized groups such as medical workers and residents of adult congregate care facilities are from estimates by Ariadne Labs of Boston and Surgo Ventures in a project funded by the Patrick J. McGovern Foundation and the Surgo Foundation. The estimates prevent double-counting from overlaps between groups such as medical workers who have preexisting conditions. The groups were modeled on vaccine distribution guidance from the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine. You can read the list of sources and the full methodology used by Ariadne Labs for counting the number of people in each group and adjusting for overlap here.

The Post worked with Ariadne Labs and Surgo Ventures to adjust the prioritized groups to be closer to directions that have been given so far by the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. The priority recommendations from the CDC are not binding on states or large cities to which the vaccines are being sent. The Post is updating this graphic with details from states on how doses are being distributed and prioritized in states.

Doses are also being distributed to the Defense Department, State Department, Department of Veterans Affairs, Federal Bureau of Prisons and Indian Health Service. Descriptions for how those will be allocated by state or particular populations are not included at this time.
