End of Day Vaccine Doses
The Coastal Health District is committed to using every dose of COVID-19 vaccine in their inventory and avoiding vaccine waste. Once a vial of COVID-19 vaccine has been punctured, every dose must be used within a few hours or the vaccine must be discarded. The Georgia Department of Public Health’s waste avoidance policy (PDF) PDF PDF PDF PDF PDF PDF PDF PDF PDF PDF PDF PDF defines how health departments should manage these unused doses.
The policy allows providers to vaccinate individuals outside the priority phase of eligibility ONLY if the alternative is to discard the dose of vaccine.
Occasionally at the end of a clinic, one of the health departments may have an additional dose of vaccine due to no-shows, cancellations, etc. The health department maintains a waitlist of individuals who are willing and able to be vaccinated, even if they do not meet the current criteria. Again, these individuals can only be vaccinated if the alternative is to throw away the vaccine.
More information is available on the Coastal Health District's COVID-19 website.
