  • Transportation and logistics
  • Water and wastewater
  • Food service
  • Housing construction
  • Finance, including bank tellers
  • Information technology
  • Communications

  • Legal services
  • Federal, state, county and local government workers, including county election workers, elected officials and members of the judiciary and their staff
  • Media
  • Public safety
  • Public health workers

More than 26% of Schuylkill County residents have gotten their full vaccine dosage since they started getting administered back in December 2020. Up until now, only seniors, people with certain health risks and those in specific professions were eligible to get a vaccine.

The state says more than 2.4 million Pennsylvanians have gotten their full COVID vaccine dosage. And more than 6 million have gotten at least a first dosage.
