Per Indiana's COVID-19 vaccination plan: "An adequate network of trained, technically competent COVID-19 vaccination providers in accessible settings is critical to Indiana’s COVID-19 vaccination program success. For this reason, the IDOH is conducting provider recruitment and enrollment in advance of COVID-19 vaccine availability. Early planning efforts are focused on engaging those vaccination providers and services that can rapidly vaccinate initial populations of focus (see Section 4: Critical Populations) as soon as a COVID-19 vaccine is available (Phase 1). Subsequent planning includes recruiting and enrolling providers to vaccinate additional critical populations and eventually the general population when sufficient vaccine supply is available (Phases 2 and 3).

The IDOH has developed a web-based COVID-19 Provider Enrollment form capturing all information defined in the “CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Program Provider Agreement” form. This web-based system will be used to enroll Indiana providers."

The enrollment link will be emailed to healthcare organizations. The enrollment will be a phased process based on expectations for vaccine availability. On Monday (Oct. 19), an email was sent to hospitals asking them to complete the enrollment for their main campuses. Initial vaccine supplies will be limited, so additional health care professionals will be asked to register in future phases of the plan as a vaccine becomes more widely available.

Tennessee

Per Tennessee's COVID-19 vaccination plan: "VPDIP’s first priority is to enroll hospitals with emergency departments and intensive care units that would see the highest acuity patients.
