Comprehensive Primary Care highly recommends receiving the Covid-19 vaccine when it becomes available to the public. We will be sending out an email as soon as we have learned the Covid-19 vaccine distribution plans for DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
We understand many people want to know which risk category they are in for receiving the vaccine. The CDC updated its recommendation on Dec 22, 2020. We are currently in Phase 1a, Recommendation for healthcare personnel, and long-term facility residents.
- Phase 1b, COVID-19 should be offered to persons age>=75 years and non-healthcare frontline essential workers
- Phase 1c, to persons 65-74 years, and persons age 16-64 with high-risk medical conditions and essential workers not included in phase 1b
- Phase 2, includes all other persons>=16 years of age not already recommended for vaccination.
