Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ Interim Recommendation for Allocating Initial Supplies of COVID-19 Vaccine

The CDC  has published The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ Interim Recommendation for Allocating Initial Supplies of COVID-19 Vaccine—United States, 2020 in an Early Release MMWR on December 3
 
As interim guidance, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends that both 1) healthcare personnel and 2) residents of long-term care facilities be offered COVID-19 vaccine in the initial phase of the vaccination program. All CDC information on current COVID-19 vaccine recommendations is available online at www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/acip-recs/vacc-specific/covid-19.html.

In conjunction with the interim ACIP recommendations, CDC published "Clinical Considerations" on a web page titled Interim Considerations for COVID-19 Vaccination of Healthcare Personnel and Long-Term Care Facility Residents.

This page provides information on additional topics, including sub-prioritization information of COVID-19 vaccination for healthcare personnel (HCP) and for those in long-term care facilities. It also discusses vaccination of pregnant and breastfeeding HCP and post-vaccination symptoms in HCP.
