What you need to know to support Phase 1 COVID vaccine distribution

As you may know, Individuals living in congregate settings (2 or more people) and the staff that support them are included in Phase 1 of the COVID-19 vaccine roll out. This means that there is a possibility that eligible individuals and staff may be able to receive the first dose of the vaccine as early as December 22nd. While there are still several details that need to be worked out at the state and local level, DODD has asked County Boards to submit all congregate living information.

To ensure the accuracy of this information, Drew Williams emailed agencies that (per an authorization report) are identified as providing congregate services. Please respond to that e-mail by end of business on Wednesday December 16th. Read More ›
