The New York Times has put together an interactive tool that lets you see where you are in line for the COVID-19 vaccine.

The New York Times has put together a new tool that helps you find out where you are in line to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

The tool — which comes from a collaboration between The New York Times, Surgo Foundation and Ariadne Labs — helps calculate the people who will need the coronavirus vaccine in each states.

The tool then reveals where you are based in line.

You’ll need to answer the following questions to discover where you are in line:

  • How old are you?
  • What county do you live in?
  • Are you an essential worker?
  • Do you have COVID-related risks?

The New York Times will then say where you are compared to the rest of the nation, followed by where you rank within your state and who’s ahead of you based on your county.

The dark months ahead

The coronavirus vaccine might be on the way, but there are still a few dire months ahead in the pandemic. Dr. Leana Wen, an emergency medicine physician, recently told CNN that the United States may soon see the “worst-case scenario” when it comes to the pandemic.

  • There’s just so much virus in our communities right now,” she said.
