With approval from the Food and Drug Administration now in hand, Pfizer is shipping doses of its coronavirus vaccine this week to hospitals around the country.

Health care workers have already started getting the shots, and most nursing home residents will start getting them next week. Other priority groups — likely a combination of essential workers, people 65 and older and those with high-risk medical conditions — will probably get access at some point in January.

Reporters at The New York Times who are writing about the vaccine would like to hear about your experience getting it — or trying to. We would also like to know whether getting a vaccine changes your day-to-day behaviors or attitude about going out in public and interacting with others.

We will not publish any part of your submission without contacting you first.
