As we learn more about vaccine availability and distribution in Washington County, we will post that information here.
The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has rigorous scientific and regulatory processes in place to facilitate development and ensure the safety, effectiveness and quality of COVID-19 vaccines.
This draft plan is only the first step. OHA is reaching out to public health, health care and community organizations to partner with them as they continue to develop this plan. OHA seeks to understand how our current systems for getting people vaccinated may need to be rebuilt to meet the needs of communities who are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
OHA’s plan will follow federal guidance for a phased approach. This means starting with vaccinations for critical groups, including people involved in the pandemic response and people at the highest risk for getting very sick. As more vaccine becomes available, there will be wider distribution to other high risk groups and the general public.
