Let’s say the COVID-19 vaccine emergency dispensing site (EDS) launches as planned, with the suggested modifications. It wasn’t perfect, and there were a few glitches. But the Action Team answered questions and overall, the EDS launch was considered a success.
The planners and Action Team keep notes of what went well and what could be improved, such as the user experience, message content, messaging means, physical access, and accommodations.
The planners use the information to create an After Action Report (AAR). Some vaccine EDS participants are willing to share their stories in the report. Photos and video are taken of the EDS site and copies of public awareness messages are attached to the EDS plan.
The Action Team reviews and comments on the AAR draft.
