A plan is in place for Colorado's vaccine distribution with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment saying the vaccine will be distributed based on a vaccination plan going to the most at-risk Coloradans, like health care workers, first responders and residents of long-term care and nursing homes.

The current vaccination plan is a draft that will be updated when state officials have more information on various factors, including available vaccines the federal government sends to Colorado, according to CDPHE.

Who do you think should get the vaccine first? Voting has closed for this poll — here are the results:

  • 74% said frontline workers
  • 15% said elderly
  • 6% said essential workers
  • 5% said general public

Watch for another poll this Tuesday afternoon that we will follow and review starting at News5 at 4 p.m.
