We don’t know when a COVID-19 vaccine will arrive, but we’re starting to know how it will be distributed.
Interviews with logistics experts, immunization professionals and pharmaceutical distribution specialists, together with U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention planning documents, give a clearer picture of how coronavirus vaccines will get from manufacturers into the arms of millions of Americans.
“The swift and so far positive effort to create vaccines to fight COVID-19 has been remarkable, but it’s only half of the work”, said Tinglong Dai, a professor of operations management who studies health care analytics at the Johns Hopkins University.
“It’s just incredible. I think the vaccine supply chain is one of the most mind-bogglingly complex supply chains ever built,” he said.
