U.S. Virgin Islands Interim COVID-19 Vaccination Plan   [open pdf - 153KB]

From the Introduction: "Since March 2020, the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) Department of Health (VIDOH) has led a multisector response to the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic in the territory. Given the unknowns with vaccine planning, VIDOH's COVID-19 vaccination plan is being designed to be flexible and accommodating to multiple scenarios - ranging from an early vaccine campaign start as well as delays in production and distribution. The plan is also designed to align with the Vaccinate with Confidence Framework and build on existing commitments to community stakeholder engagement. While some challenges have been identified, VIDOH is confident of overcoming these issues through well-established relationships with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Department of Health and Human Services, Federal Emergency Management Agency, and abundance of local champions in the USVI. This approach will ensure VIDOH is able to administer vaccines across the major islands of St. Thomas, Water Island, St. John, and St. Croix and achieve the highest vaccine coverage possible."
