Public Listening Session Today



Discussion Draft of the Preliminary Framework for
Equitable Allocation of COVID-19 Vaccine


Today, Wednesday, September 2, from 12:00 to 5:00 pm ET, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will host an open online session to receive public comments on a Discussion Draft of the Preliminary Framework for Equitable Allocation of COVID-19 Vaccine, as part of a study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The study will recommend priorities to inform allocation of a limited initial supply of COVID-19 vaccine, taking into account factors such as racial/ethnic and other health disparities, as well as groups at higher risk from COVID-19 due to health status, occupation, or living conditions. Input from the public, especially communities highly impacted by COVID-19, is essential to produce a final report that is objective, balanced, and inclusive.

A discussion draft of the preliminary framework is available for download here and you can view today's agenda here.

Written Comment Period:

September 1 (12:00 pm ET) - September 4, 2020 (11:59 pm ET)


Commenters will be able to download and review the discussion draft before submitting a comment through a form (uploaded documents accepted). All materials and comments received will be placed in the committee’s Public Access File, and may be provided to the public upon request. The discussion draft and comment form is available at nationalacademies.org/VaccineAllocationComment.

The Association of Black Cardiologists encourages you to attend the listening session and provide comment on the draft of the preliminary framework for Equitable Allocation of COVID-19 Vaccine.
