Last week, we shared recently released CDC guidance for phased implementation of COVID-19 vaccination. For the homelessness services community, the two major takeaways from this guidance are:

1. “Frontline essential” workers are a subset of “essential” workers and are defined as workers in close proximity to others (e.g., closer than 6 feet). CDC recommends that “frontline essential” workers be included in the 1b vaccination group.
2. Because of increased rates of transmission within congregate living settings, and based on local epidemiology and implementation considerations, tribal, state and local jurisdictions may choose to vaccinate homelessness residents at the same time as they vaccinate “frontline essential” workers (e.g., within the 1b vaccination group).

Communities are strongly encouraged to review your State's vaccination plan and to reach out to your local and state public health partners to ensure there is a clear understanding of when and how people experiencing homelessness will be prioritized for the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to recent guidance from CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, jurisdictions may choose to vaccinate residents of congregate settings (e.g., correctional or detention facilities, homeless shelters, group homes, or employer provided shared housing units) at the same time as frontline staff (i.e., during Phase 1). Check with your local and state health departments to find out how they are prioritizing staff and residents of congregate facilities. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/phased-implementation.html
