Topic Collection: COVID-19 Vaccine Resources

This Topic Collection focuses on vaccine-specific plans, tools, templates, and other immediately implementable resources to help with COVID-19 preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation efforts.

The distribution and administration of vaccines to prevent COVID-19 should build on established plans. Federal, state, territorial, local, and tribal governments and their healthcare and other emergency preparedness partners have conducted extensive planning on the most effective methods to distribute and administer medical countermeasures – including vaccines – in their communities. Refer to the ASPR TRACIE Mass Distribution and Dispensing of Medical Countermeasures Topic Collection for related resources.  Resources marked with an asterisk (*) appear in more than one category.

Please refer to the NIH Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Treatment Guidelines and CDC’s Coronavirus Disease 2019 webpage for the most up-to-date guidance on COVID-19 outbreak management.

If you have COVID-19 best or promising practices, plans, tools, or templates to share with your peers, please visit the ASPR TRACIE Information Exchange COVID-19 Information Sharing Page (registration required) and place your resources under the relevant topic area. Resources specific to Vaccines can be placed under the COVID-19 Vaccines Resources Topic.
