NAMA Releases Important COVID-19 Vaccine Resources For Operators

ARLINGTON, VA - January 20, 2021 - NAMA announced today that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has granted its request to include convenience services employees under Phase 1b of its COVID-19 Vaccination Program Interim Playbook for Jurisdiction Operations - guidance for states on how the vaccine should be distributed.

Each state has been tasked with developing its own vaccine deployment plan, but many have followed the CDC interim playbook and have moved into Phase 1b this week. NAMA has compiled several resources to assist operators in being prepared for when industry is able to be vaccinated in their states. The resources include a COVID Vaccine Deployment Tracker and a Sample Vaccination Eligibility Letter for operators, route drivers, warehouse workers, and other employees to have on hand when visiting the vaccination site.
