Update from State: Workgroup Named to Develop Guidance for Vaccine Distribution

Last week, Governor Gavin Newsom announced the formation of an independent workgroup with the mission of reviewing the safety and efficacy of any COVID-19 vaccine that received FDA approval for distribution. To supplement that effort, the California Department of Public Health has formed a COVID-19 Drafting Guidelines Workgroup – made up of California immunization, geriatrics, ethics, epidemiology, health equity, and pharmacy practice experts.

The new workgroup will develop California-specific guidance for the prioritization and allocation of a COVID-19 vaccine. The guidance will be based on several national frameworks from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). COVID-19 vaccine supplies are expected to be limited initially.

The Drafting Guidelines Workgroup is part of the state's initial COVID-19 vaccine distribution plan, which was submitted to the CDC on October 16. Many vaccine candidates are in clinical trials currently, and California is putting a system in place for a safety review, prioritization, distribution and administration of vaccines as supply becomes available.

For more information, read CDPH’s news release or an overview of CDPH’s vaccine distribution planning efforts.
