FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The next wave of coronavirus vaccinations are now being given out.

The CDC has identified adults over the age of 75 and frontline essential workers – including education workers, first responders, and grocery store workers – among those who should get the next round of COVID-19 vaccines.

CVS Health has started doing that at more than 40,000 long-term care facilities in several states and will launch the Indiana effort on December 28th.

Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine will start being distributed today, joining Pfizer’s effort, which has been in circulation since December 11th.
