HHS/DOD Release Vaccine Distribution Plan

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Department of Defense (DOD) have released their joint vaccination plan ‘From the Factories to the Frontline.’ The plan mentions their commitment to rural America saying:

“HHS is also committed to ensuring rural populations can receive the vaccine, and has decades of experience working with public health partners addressing the needs of hard-to-reach populations. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will work with local communities, governments, and other partners to identify the best places and times to reach this population and utilize strategic distribution points via community health centers, schools, workplaces, mobile clinics, and pharmacies.”
