BOSTON (WWLP) – Healthcare professionals are already planning how vaccination will be approached within the Community.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has asked countries to submit their plans for the distribution of vaccines by November 1st.
Massachusetts unveiled a draft of how they plan to distribute the vaccine on Saturday. According to the project, the state expects to receive between 20,000 and 60,000 doses of the vaccine in the first phase.
The first phase will give priority to health professionals and people considered to be at high risk. The second phase will include “color communities and African American, Latin American, Asia Pacific, LGBT and non-US-born communities with significant cultural and linguistic capacity.”
Once the state has enough vaccine available in the final phase, health officials said the plan is for everyone to be vaccinated quickly and free of charge.
