From the Introduction: "The purpose of the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] Vaccine Plan is to assist partners in a shared understanding of pandemic response that includes planning assumptions, roles and responsibilities, ordering and reporting, and mass vaccination tools for local providers to substantially reduce morbidity and mortality from COVID-19. The scope of this plan is limited to the distribution and dispensing of COVID-19 vaccine and ancillary supplies to all Nebraskans through vaccine supplied by the federal government to include tribal nations located in the state (unless otherwise directed by federal guidance). COVID-19 was declared a pandemic in March of 2020. COVID-19 vaccine research and development also began in March 2020. Thoughtful allocation of COVID-19 vaccines will be critical to prevent morbidity and mortality and reduce the impact of COVID-19 on society. The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (NDHHS) Immunization Program will work with various providers, traditional and nontraditional, to explore training opportunities, set goals, evaluate vaccination exercise experiences, and provide collective collaboration that is solution-oriented. However, the Immunization Program will continue to update and improve the plan on an on-going basis to ensure that Nebraskans are the recipients of the most current, efficient, and effective services."
