Vaccination will play a critical role in protecting Nebraskans against COVID-19 as well as slowing the spread of the virus. DHHS, local health departments and other partners are planning for the arrival of COVID-19 vaccine in Nebraska. DHHS has worked to ensure that inclusion, transparency, and a sound evidence base are the foundation of Nebraska's COVID-19 vaccination plan. 

The goal is to ensure fair and equitable access, and to distribute the vaccine in a way that provides the most protection for Nebraskans as quickly as possible. There are many unknowns that still remain in planning for vaccine distribution, making this plan a living document that will be revised as new information is available.
