· Government continues to work with various pharmaceuticals companies

National versus Regional control

What aspects of supply and distribution are the responsibility of the national versus regional government?

Following FDA clearance, the federal government and 64 state, local, and territorial jurisdictional vaccination programs, with which the CDC collaborates and funds, begin to manage the supply of available vaccine doses to designated administration locations around the country. The amount of dosages allotted to each jurisdiction will be determined by the federal government.

· Government work with various pharmaceuticals companies

Challenges & Solutions

What challenges have there been with supply and distribution of vaccines?

How are these challenges being addressed?

· Because persons who get doses are assigned to the jurisdiction in which they live, the reporting method may vary between doses if they relocate to a new immunization area.

· The CDC has set a threshold of 95 percent for immunization coverage estimates published on COVID Data Tracker. This limit helps to resolve potential overestimations of vaccination coverage.

· Problem to identify, the most vulnerable in the community

· They register their priority groups before vaccines arrive
