Please see the following message from the CDC, regarding immunization guidance during COVID-19:

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused healthcare providers to change how they operate to continue to provide essential services to patients. Ensuring that immunization services are maintained or reinitiated is essential for protecting individuals and communities from vaccine-preventable diseases and outbreaks, and reducing the burden of respiratory illness during the upcoming influenza season.

CDC has issued “Interim Guidance for Immunization Services During the COVID-19 Pandemic” to assist immunization providers in a variety of clinical settings and alternative settings plan for the safe administration of vaccines during the COVID-19 pandemic. This guidance will be updated as the COVID-19 pandemic
evolves.

Highlights include:
Considerations for routine vaccination of all recommended vaccinations for children, adolescents, and adults, including pregnant women
General practices for the safe delivery of vaccination services, including considerations for alternative vaccination sites
Strategies for catch up vaccinations.
