The FDA approved emergency use of a vaccine developed by Moderna for people 18 years old and over on December 18. That followed the December 11 approval of a Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine for people 16 and older. In both cases, vaccination is complete after a person receives two doses three to four weeks apart.

In the early stages of distribution, two groups get priority for the vaccine: the 21 million US healthcare workers and the 3 million people living in long-term care facilities.

Every week, the Department of Health and Human Services determines an allotment to ship to each state. The graph below shows the weekly national allotment so far.
