“After the Long Term Care (LTC) Pharmacy Partnership Program finishes their third clinics, LTC facilities (skilled nursing, assisted living, ID/DD, and other congregate care settings) will need to secure access to vaccine for new residents, staff, and those who did not get vaccinated initially. To secure access to COVID-19 vaccine, AHCA/NCAL recommends following the steps below:”
- Determine which LTC pharmacies in your area are offering COVID-19 vaccine.
- Determine how you will receive and administer COVID-19 vaccine in your center.
- Determine if you need to become a vaccine provider in your state.
- Develop plans to avoid vaccine wastage.
What if I cannot find an LTC pharmacy to deliver vaccine?
