Public health professionals across Arizona and around the country are already hard at work laying the groundwork for efficient and inclusive allocation and distribution of the vaccine. There is currently a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine in the United States, but supply will increase in the weeks and months to come. Once vaccines are widely available, the plan is to have several thousand vaccination providers offering vaccines in doctors’ offices, retail pharmacies, hospitals, and federally qualified health centers.
Following the distribution of vaccines, economic growth is expected to pick up, and job gains with it. Senior economist Leo Feler anticipates two more quarters of slow growth with seasonally adjusted annual rates of 1.2% for the fourth quarter of 2020 and 1.8% for the first quarter of 2021 before robust growth of 6% in the second quarter of 2021. After that, growth rates should remain above 3.0% well into 2023. "We expect the economy will reach its previous peak by the end of 2021," Feler writes. Knowing this, it is important that your business efforts are well prepared for new customers and new income.
