Philadelphia Interim COVID-19 Vaccination Plan   [open pdf - 162KB]

From the Introduction: "The Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH) COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Vaccine Distribution Plan documents local strategies for distributing COVID-19 vaccine to persons in Philadelphia through three phases of vaccine availability: 1) limited dose availability; 2) broader dose availability; and 3) sufficient supply to vaccinate all Philadelphians. This Plan addresses the 15 areas identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in their Interim Playbook for Jurisdiction Operations (Version 1.0), issued on September 16, 2020. The Plan was developed by PDPH, guided by recommendations from the COVID-19 Vaccine Advisory Committee (VAC). The VAC is comprised of local stakeholders representing healthcare, vulnerable populations, faith-based organizations, business sectors, insurers, and others affected by the pandemic. The VAC was established to advise on prioritization strategies for vaccine distribution, to address health equity issues, and to guide communication and community engagement strategies to build trust and promote vaccine uptake."
