The list of “essential workers” continues to grow.
It is pretty much impossible to determine how many “essential workers” Virginia has as the Dept of Health posts no numbers or definitions, but now meat and poultry workers AND THEIR FAMILIES are elbowing their way to the front of the line.
Nationally, with 210million Americans eligible for vaccination(18 and older) we have 30 million health care and long term facility residents at the front of the line, followed by 90 million “Essential Workers” so over half the US population will be vaccinated before we even start on the elderly.
And the list continues to grow. Those who most need the vaccine to survive are on their way to being last to get it.
