CDC Sets October 16 Deadline For States To Submit Plans On Coronavirus Vaccine Distribution

  • September 23, 2020

Reuters (9/22, Steenhuysen, Maddipatla) reports the CDC set a deadline of October 16 “for states to submit plans for distributing COVID-19 vaccines – even before it becomes clear when any will be available – according to a presentation to a panel of experts who make recommendations on U.S. vaccines.” Once the FDA authorizes a coronavirus vaccine the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) “will call an emergency meeting to make specific recommendations on distribution priorities, according to ACIP panel member Dr. Beth Bell of the University of Washington.”
