2021 Department of Defense Packaging Innovation Excellence Award presented to the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Distribution Vaccine Operations Team

The team rapidly established a global pipeline for the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, and delivered more than 1 million doses to forward-deployed military personnel, their families, and Department of Defense contractors in 35 countries. This is an outstanding achievement given the requirements for scheduling, inspection, cold chain management, and recipient verification for each shipment. Additionally, the team supported the delivery of more than 36 million items of critical medical supply items and equipment to frontline healthcare workers in support of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
