|Update on Vaccine Allocation and Registration
In collaboration with the West Virginia Joint Interagency Task Force (JIATF), GO-WV is providing this one-page document that gives an updated overview and summary of the process for vaccine allocation and registration for priority groups in overlapping Phases 1A-D. We ask that you read and share with your workers.
While several factors guide the state’s decision-making on the overlapping phased approach for vaccine distribution, the decision making for allocating the limited supplies of vaccines include protecting the most vulnerable, reducing hospitalizations, reducing the rate of deaths, and ensuring the state and local communities can maintain critical services including our acute healthcare system.
The pandemic leadership for the State of West Virginia understands the vital role oil and natural gas workers play in maintaining our economy and the critical functions that keep West Virginia going. As additional quantities of the vaccine increase over the coming months, the JIATF Group will be able to reach more individuals through this pathway to community immunity. Frequently asked questions and information on the phases of vaccine distribution, are available at vaccinate.wv.gov.
Assistance on questions or additional information, can be made through Sherrie Stone, Office of the Adjutant General, Joint Interagency Task Force Group at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
HERE, you will find an Excel spreadsheet (survey) provided by the Adjutant General’s office. The information you provide on this spreadsheet will identify workers in two categories – those considered “critically essential” (regardless of age) and those considered “non-critical” but over 50 years of age.
