The CDC’s COVID-19 Vaccination Program Interim Playbook for Jurisdiction Operations

The CDC’s “COVID-19 Vaccination Program Interim Playbook for Jurisdiction Operations” (attached below) provides a phased approach for the initial distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine to essential workforces as follows:


Phase 1-A: Paid and unpaid persons serving in healthcare settings who have the potential for direct or indirect exposure to patients or infectious materials.

Phase 1-B: People who play a key role in keeping essential functions of society running and cannot socially distance in the workplace (e.g., emergency and law enforcement personnel not included in Phase 1-A, food packaging and distribution workers, teachers/school staff, childcare providers), adults with high-risk medical conditions who possess risk factors for severe COVID-19 illness, and people 65 years of age or older (including those living in LTCFs).
