March 10, 2021
Up to 140,000 more Montanans will be eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine Monday thanks to an expansion of the state's current distribution phase.
As Montana begins to receive more doses of COVID-19 vaccines, including the recently approved one-shot Johson & Johnson vaccine, Gov. Greg Gianforte said Tuesday he is expanding vaccine eligibility in Phase 1B to include Montanans over 60 years old and others over 16 years old with pre-existing conditions like liver disease and asthma that weren't previously included in Phase 1B. The new criteria take effect Monday.
