On Thursday, September 24, US Department of Health and Human Services Deputy Secretary Hargan sent a Dear Tribal Leader Letter (DTLL) announcing the initiation of Tribal Consultation to seek input from Tribal Leaders on COVID-19 vaccination planning for Indian Country. This Tribal Consultation complements the state planning process that began last week with the publication of the CDC’s COVID-19 Vaccination Program Interim Playbook for Jurisdiction Operations. This playbook guides Immunization Program Awardees (e.g., state and local jurisdictions with routine immunization programs) in planning and operationalizing their COVID-19 vaccination response.
In addition to feedback during conference calls, Tribal leaders can provide input and recommendations in writing by submitting comments to [email protected]. The deadline for written comments on this Tribal Consultation is Friday, October 9, 2020.
