The Indian Health Service COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force (VTF) is working to operationalize COVID-19 vaccines approved under an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA). The first two COVID-19 vaccines approved under an EUA have been available for over a month in the US. There are many lessons learned since the initial launch of the vaccines, and we will share important details about the process of storing, monitoring, administering, and documenting vaccines. This series of webinars will inform healthcare team members at all levels about clinical aspects, logistics and complexities of the novel COVID-19 vaccines. Outcomes/Objectives: 1. Examine vaccine allocations from Federal Vaccine Response Operation, IHS distribution processes and platforms for reviewing vaccine administration data. 2. Apply lessons learned in the first month of vaccine use for the two products currently approved under an EUA. 3. Examine available data on the safety of the vaccines approved under an EUA that has been collected to date. 4. Describe vaccine products on the horizon – looking forward to the next potential COVID-19 vaccines.
