Complete Playbooks​

The following playbooks offer step-by-step guidance on planning and executing a mass vaccination site. Some are specific to COVID-19 vaccination, while others are more generic. Some apply to specific models of mass vaccination sites (e.g. drive-through or walk-up), and many contain helpful checklists, logs, sample language, and other tools. All of the playbooks cover the same major operational factors (staffing, supplies, space and traffic flow, vaccines, etc.), but for those just beginning to plan a mass vaccination site, we suggest choosing a playbook from Start Here. For those looking for tools to use in their mass vaccination sites, we suggest choosing a playbook from More Useful Tools. For those looking for advice about cross-cutting topics such as communicating with patients, ensuring equity in access, and supporting staff, we suggest choosing a playbook from Additional Advice.
