The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has quietly alerted health officials in all 50 states to prepare for a new vaccine in the days leading up to November’s presidential election,media BGR reported. Here’s whatmedia now know about how the new corona vaccine will actually be distributed. Efforts to actually deliver the necessary doses of vaccine to health professionals who will vaccinate the public have been described as “incredibly complex”, and how does the process of managing the new crown vaccine unfold?
The CDC, which has overseen vaccine distribution in the United States for decades, will continue to oversee the process. “We’re excited to see the CDC ahead and center,” Dr. Kelly Moore, deputy director of immunization education at the Alliance for Action on Immunization, recently told USA Today. “They’re the right organization to lead this.”
As for how much individuals will pay, the U.S. government is buying the vaccine that will be distributed in the first phase, and accordingly, there will be no charge for the vaccine itself. It is not entirely clear whether clinics in the United States will be allowed to charge some kind of administrative fee to people who receive COVID-19 vaccinations there — and, if so, whether and how insurance plans are reimbursed.
Here are some other key points Americans need to know about vaccination:
Early supplies of the new crown vaccine will be limited, and the CDC’s plan suggests that more vaccines will begin in January. Health care workers and people in high-risk categories will be given priority vaccination.
Places where new crown vaccinations are planned, such as pharmacies, hospitals, and clinics, need to be included in the U.S. COVID-19 vaccination program, which includes proof that they have the space, resources, and trained staff to complete the vaccination.
More likely, most Americans end up getting vaccinated 21 or 28 days apart. In addition, CDC documents show that after being vaccinated, the program plans to provide people with a new crown vaccine record card that includes information about what vaccine they were vaccinated against, when they should be vaccinated, and when they should be vaccinated.
