The CDC has released its COVID-19 Vaccination Program Interim Playbook for Jurisdiction Operations. This document is intended to serve as guidance for state, territorial, and local public health programs and partners on how to plan and operationalize a vaccination response to COVID-19 within their jurisdictions. Argentum’s Vaccine Task Force, made up of clinical experts, is reviewing this document from the CDC and is working to make sure senior living is ready for administration of COVID-19 vaccines when they become available. The task force is providing the CDC with detailed feedback and hopes to have additional guidance distributed within a few weeks.
