The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) has created a list that shows the priority level that firefighters and EMS personnel will be given the COVID-19 vaccine.
“All fire chiefs are encouraging to review their state’s plan and see how firefighters and EMS personnel in their state have been prioritized for access to the COVID-19 vaccine,” the group said on its website. “Based on this prioritization level, the IAFC also encourages all fire chiefs to urge their governor’s office and local public health department to ensure that all firefighters and EMS personnel are placed on Tier 1A for access to a COVID-19 vaccine.”
The IAFC notes the priority level is “extremely fluid” and will likely change.
