As the first vaccines start rolling out, each state will be required to manage the vaccine distribution process to ensure targeted populations, health care workers, nursing home patients, etc. are able to receive the initial doses.

In today’s episode of Disaster Recovery Roundtable Podcast, Tidal Basin CEO Daniel Craig says the biggest challenge for states will be managing the vaccine program.

Topics Covered:

  • The FDA Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee is meeting to consider approving the first COVID-19 vaccine use in the U.S. The committee will consider emergency use authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine with final FDA approval coming as early as this week (12/10/20).
  • The Pfizer-BioNTech group is requesting an “emergency use authorization,” shy of a full approval. The vaccine is desperately needed as public health experts warn virus cases will continue to climb. As of December 10th, there have been more than 15.3 million cases and 289,000 deaths have been reported, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
  • As the first vaccines start rolling out, each state will be required to manage the vaccine distribution process to ensure targeted populations, health care workers, nursing home patients, etc. are able to receive the initial doses.
