Rep. Kim Schrier (D-Wash.)


Almost exactly a year after the United States’ first case of the novel coronavirus was detected in my home state, that is today’s big question. What group of people should be prioritized to receive COVID-19 vaccines after health care workers and residents of long-term care facilities?
It is remarkable that we are even having this discussion now. We should all be tremendously grateful to the scientists and researchers who drew on decades of study and worked around the clock to develop these vaccines in record time, and those who volunteered to take part in vaccine trials.
