ABSTRACT

Washington State Interim COVID-19 Vaccination Plan   [open pdf - 147KB]

From the Executive Summary: "On September 16, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released the 'COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Vaccination Program Interim Playbook for Jurisdiction Operations.' This document outlined the federal strategy for delivering and administering COVID-19 vaccine once one is approved, and it requested state and territorial health departments to answer questions and outline their plans for vaccine distribution. The jurisdictional plans were due to the CDC by October 16, 2020. This plan is Washington State's response to this request. It describes how we will approach the work of planning for and distributing a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine. It will be updated over time as additional planning occurs and as CDC updates guidance for jurisdictions. Overall, Washington State is well positioned to receive, handle, distribute, and administer COVID-19 vaccine to its residents once a safe and effective vaccine is available. The Washington State Department of Health has started its planning by coordinating with tribal nations, state agencies, local government, community leaders, health care providers, neighboring states, and other partners."
