Community Vaccination Centers Playbook [February 18, 2021]   [open pdf - 3MB]

Version 2.0 of the "Community Vaccination Centers Playbook" incorporates comments submitted from the previous version. From the Purpose and Summary: "This playbook establishes guidance for providing federal support to Community Vaccination Centers (CVCs), to include interagency coordination, resource support, facility setup, and other requirements. CVCs are essential to support States, Tribes and Territories (STT) vaccine administration efforts. This guidance is not meant to be proscriptive, and jurisdictions may need to adapt this guidance based on their particular requirements for federal support. [...] To date, the ongoing COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic has claimed the lives of more than 430,000 Americans. While mitigation measures such as social distancing and the wearing of masks are effective tools in preventing the spread of COVID-19, an additional way to protect people and reduce the spread of this disease is with the widespread administration of COVID-19 vaccines. As part of a national effort to speed the pace of COVID-19 vaccination campaigns, the President has directed the federal government to establish new federally supported CVCs. As stated in the National Strategy for COVID-19 Response and Pandemic Preparedness, FEMA is charged with supporting the set-up and operations of such CVCs."
