Who should get the COVID-19 vaccine next? Panel set to discuss at federal level this weekend

While New York State has its own plan for COVID-19 vaccination efforts, a debate is growing about who should get it next across the U.S.

In many cases, each state is having its own internal debate, trying to identify the players that need it most in the pandemic. Those who work on the frontlines, healthcare workers, and others are all jockeying for position.

A federal panel of vaccination experts takes up that question at an emergency meeting this weekend. No matter what the committee decides there will be huge differences on a state-by-state basis.

A proposal would be voted on Sunday.

It begs the question: Who do you think should be next in line for the vaccine?
