The UC Health COVID-19 Mass Vaccination Playbook with Senior Director Sarah White

March 3, 2021: UCHealth released a must-read COVID-19 mass drive-thru vaccination playbook. Here to take us through it is Sarah White, Senior Director, Innovation and Health Systems Engineering. What is the genesis of the playbook? How can other health systems replicate the success they had at Coors Field, Denver? What kinds of partnerships do you need to put on a mass vaccination event? How do you find a site? What about the logistics? What about efficient scheduling? How does technology stand up in a parking lot? How do you track the vaccines? And what are the biggest lessons learned from the process?

Key Points:

  • We pulled in individuals across our entire health system. Supply chain, nursing, finance, IT, operations, logistics, emergency preparedness team, emergency services, medical director, event planning and facilities. [00:06:30] 
  • Why outdoors in Colorado? There’s so many things that could go wrong [00:10:02]  
  • 0.9% no-show rate [00:11:50] 
  • The check-in process was around 30 seconds. The majority of our population were able to either print their QR code or show it on their mobile phone. [00:14:15] 
  • You have to have a really impressive communication plan [00:17:05] 
  • We partnered with Verizon to get the wireless communication infrastructure into the parking lot [00:24:20] 
  • Two 6-hour days, 10,000 vaccines administered, 834 cars per hour, 22.4 and Zero unused doses [00:32:45]
