Working towards greater equity in vaccine distribution: To ensure underserved communities and those disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic are equitably vaccinated, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and CDC are launching a program next week to directly allocate a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine to select HRSA-funded health centers.

The new guidance emphasizes the importance of mask fit. CDC's Improve the Fit and Filtration of Your Mask to Reduce the Spread of COVID-19 page offers some suggestions to maximize the performance of cloth and procedural masks and this video shows how you can "knot and tuck" a procedural mask to improve fit.
