Can unemployed, retired/essential workers receive a vaccine?

Unemployed individuals are not eligible at this time. Phase 1b includes front line essential workers in sectors essential to the functioning of society and are at substantially higher risk of exposure to COVID-19 through their current employment. However, retired or unemployed essential workers 65 years or above can obtain vaccination.
