COVID-19 vaccine was first received in Philadelphia on December 16, 2020. Healthcare workers with the highest risk of being exposed and of transmitting the infection are currently being prioritized. Most vaccinations are being given to hospital-based staff and COVID-19 testing staff.

Because the overall number of vaccinations given so far is small, there is insufficient data to allow meaningful subpopulation analysis.
