State and local public health officials faced daunting logistical challenges during the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, including how to adequately staff COVID vaccination sites for increased distribution. While it’s no longer publicly available, Booz Allen’s COVID-19 Vaccination Workforce Simulator was designed to address these staffing concerns.
Healthcare and clerical workers were essential to effective COVID-19 vaccine administration and distribution—getting vaccine doses more quickly into people’s arms. State and local governments needed to address questions about workforce staffing and support, such as:
- How should we adjust our workforce to handle the increased availability and distribution of vaccine doses?
- How many medical professionals and clerical workers do we need at community vaccination sites?
- Given the number of doses available, how long will it take to vaccinate residents in our community, county, or state?
