CDC 2009 H1N1 Vaccination Campaign Planning Checklist

The CDC released it's H1N1 Vaccination Campaign Checklist Monday:

"This document is intended for state and local planners. Its purpose is to outline the main 2009 influenza A (H1N1) monovalent vaccine (“ 2009 H1N1 vaccine”) planning actions. It is not meant to be exhaustive, and more detailed guidance is, or will be, available on specific topics.

Target and Priority Groups

Coordination of vaccine distribution
Vaccination of healthcare workers and EMS personnel
Vaccination of school-aged children
Hard to reach and vulnerable populations (i.e. Develop plan for reaching these populations and/or transporting to clinic sites)
Doses administered tracking
* Contact primary public health counsel to determine which allied health professionals are legally permitted to administer vaccine, to what types of patients, and under what conditions.
* Ensure dissemination/explanation of PREP Act information to planners and vaccinators"
