From the Factory to the Frontlines: The Operation Warp Speed Strategy for Distributing a COVID-19 Vaccine   [open pdf - 1MB]

From the Document: "This report to Congress details a strategy to achieve the principal purpose and objective of Operation Warp Speed (OWS): ensuring that every American who wants to receive a COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] vaccine can receive one, by delivering safe and effective vaccine doses to the American people beginning January 2021. [...] Once a vaccine has received approval or authorization from the FDA, the four key tasks to achieve the primary objective of ensuring vaccine access for every American who wants it are to: [1] Continue engaging with state, tribal, territorial, and local partners, other stakeholders, and the public to communicate public health information, before and after distribution begins, around the vaccine and promote vaccine confidence and uptake. [2] Distribute vaccines immediately upon granting of Emergency Use Authorization/ Biologics License Application, using a transparently developed, phased allocation methodology. [3] Ensure safe administration of the vaccine and availability of administration supplies. [4] Monitor necessary data from the vaccination program through an information technology (IT) system capable of supporting and tracking distribution, administration, and other necessary data."
