COVID-19 Vaccine Resources: Vaccine Access/Eligibility, Side Effects, and Cost

This vaccination effort faces unprecedented challenges in terms of the order of magnitude, the complexity of the vaccine administration, and the limited supply of the product.  Each state has devised its own vaccine distribution plan; although these plans have been described as “works in progress” and continue to be updated and refined.  The links below are intended to provide information about vaccine access, safety information and potential side effects as well as costs.

Contact your local and state health department to ascertain whether audiologists are included in the definition of “health-care worker.” 

The Academy has also learned that in many states, local departments of health are taking responsibility for vaccinating health-care providers who are not affiliated with a large health-care system or hospital.
