The Missouri Advisory Committee on Equitable COVID Vaccine Distribution was formed in 2020 to work directly with and engage the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services' external partners and stakeholders to inform an equitable distribution of Missouri’s COVID-19 vaccine supply. The Committee’s mission is to solicit stakeholder feedback across the state of Missouri to ensure equitable distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine across all communities with a focus on the disability, aging and underserved and underrepresented minority communities.
This Advisory Committee is working hard with community leaders to help Missouri strategize how to deliver vaccines to those individuals who need them most, inform our State’s process on the COVID-19 vaccine distribution and help expand COVID-19 vaccine awareness, education and promotion. The Committee is co-chaired by Adam Crumbliss, Director, Division of Community & Public Health and Sara Hart Weir, Special Advisor, COVID-19 (Disability Services) from the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services.
