The SDMAC is responsible for developing and providing guidelines for hospitals, out-of-hospital facilities and providers, and alternate care sites on the allocation of scare resources during a public health emergency, and advising the DHS Secretary on those issues. The SDMAC created and charged the Vaccine Subcommittee with the following tasks: (1) To inform DHS policies and protocols around vaccines for COVID-19; (2) To recommend the organization level at which prioritization will occur (region, health system, county, etc.); (3) To develop criteria used to prioritize vaccine recipients; and (4) To develop considerations for multi-dose prioritization, if applicable. The subcommittee’s work will be subject to a public comment period before it is elevated to the SDMAC for further consideration.
