Ensuring Sustainability and Reach of COVID Vaccine Distribution

Published date

October 8, 2021

As part of a comprehensive effort to support state leaders as they navigate the COVID-19 response, the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy and the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) convened a meeting in July 2021 with state officials and national experts to share best practices and innovative approaches to increase COVID-19 vaccinations. This issue brief describes state approaches to reaching remaining unvaccinated populations, mitigating the spread of COVID-19, and reimagining a sustained pandemic response. The report builds on prior work that describes state approaches to achieving equity and efficiency in earlier phases of COVID-19 vaccine distribution.
