Trump Administration Reveals COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Plan

HHS and the Department of Defense (DOD) released their joint vaccination plan ‘From the Factories to the Frontline.’ This plan was released after months of planning and gathering information from stakeholders in the wake of Congress’ passage of the CARES Act, which included Operation Warp Speed. Operation Warp Speed is the plan to advance and fund several different potential vaccinations in the hopes of identifying a viable vaccination quickly. In reference to rural America, the Administration displayed their commitment to equitable delivery 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. 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.
