More ages eligible as state changes COVID-19 vaccine strategy

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

Maine has moved from a vaccine schedule based on age, occupation, and health conditions to one based strictly on age. Governor Janet Mills announced the change on Friday, Feb. 26 to take effect this week.

“A review of recent data by the Maine CDC indicates that age is a significant predictor of whether someone will become seriously sick or is more likely to die if they contract COVID-19,” said Mills in a written statement.
