From the Introduction: "Since the beginning of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic, the State of Ohio has led an aggressive response to the virus focusing on education, prevention, testing, tracing, and treatment. Ohio's work early in the pandemic focused on: flattening the curve across the state, supporting the healthcare response, addressing the unique needs of congregate settings, establishing a comprehensive PPE [personal protective equipment] procurement plan, and creating a data infrastructure to help inform decisions and ensure public transparency. The state acted quickly and decisively to control the spread of the virus and responsibly reopen. The COVID-19 vaccine is the next step in our fight against COVID-19, and Ohio is preparing rapidly for deployment. As we prepare for the approval and delivery of a vaccine, the state's key priorities remain to limit the spread of COVID-19 and save lives. Ohio submitted our plan for vaccine distribution to the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] on 10/16/2020. This plan is a framework of how decisions will be made when we know more about the vaccine and will provide us a way forward in the next chapter of the pandemic."
