The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services Immunization Program aims to protect people against known and emerging infectious diseases here in Nebraska. COVID-19 has greatly impacted the lives of all Nebraskans and this program intends to provide the COVID-19 vaccine when it is made available for allocation. The CDC believes that the COVID-19 vaccine will be limited and therefore should be allocated in a phased approach.
