OPIC Meeting

2021-01-08 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

COVID-19 Vaccination Discussion

[Dr.Duldulao and Dr. Raphael]

  • Representing OPIC at the State’s Vaccine Advisory Committee 
  • Have the responsibility of supporting the State in determining how we sequence distribution of the vaccine 
  • Governor’s Office [Sophorn Cheang] shared that the deadline for sequencing is January 31st 
    • Dr.Duldulao gave feedback to the governor’s office on how it is pitting communities against each other
    • Do not feel set up for success
  • Leann Johnson updated that they will be making the meetings more transactional because of feedback around not being able to get through all important agenda items
    • The next meeting is on January 14, 2021
  • Washington is advanced and has an application sharing where they are in vaccine distribution 
  • The plan is to come up with recommendations to share with the State such as
    • Expanding definitions to reflect community/cultural practices 
    • Expanding the category of congregate 
  • We are still in Phase I
    • National Guard is leading vaccination this weekend at the State Fair Grounds
    • The goal is to vaccinate 12K people a day/ hope to vaccinate 300-400K people in Phase I but only have vaccinated at 70K so far
    • Teachers are in front of the line of Phase 1B
    • Not set in stone how we define essential worker 
  • Current sequencing does not include groups by race/ethnicity
    • Partially because data at the national level / CDC is really bad, so they are mainly doing it by occupation
    • Make sure communities prioritized by testing and are most impacted (i.e. BIPOC)
    • A lot of this is based on the honor system – and you identify
