Mohave County is moving on to the next phase of its coronavirus vaccine rollout. Because of limited supplies, the county is prioritizing the vaccine for people working in front-line industries. Mohave County said it was not clear how long it would take to receive sufficient vaccines for the entire 1B category, which includes healthcare workers, adults in congregate settings, law enforcement, teachers and childcare workers, and essential services and critical industry workers.

Applicable careers include:
