Let’s talk about vaccines! For years there has been much fear and skepticism surrounding vaccines. The COVID-19 crisis has intensified this situation as a new vaccine is being developed. This webinar will clarify misinformation and improve agency compliance, patient health, and public safety.

AFTER THIS WEBINAR YOU’LL BE ABLE TO:

  • Discuss the status of a COVID-19 vaccine
  • Know how and when to implement a vaccine assessment tool
  • Define who is considered high risk and a priority for vaccination
  • Debunk vaccine myths
  • Provide resources to patients and staff regarding which vaccines are critical, where to obtain them, and who pays for them

WEBINAR DETAILS

We live in an age of vaccine skepticism and are facing one of the biggest public health crises that require vaccine intervention. In less than a year, scientists and pharmaceutical industries around the world have rallied against COVID-19 and are chasing the first COVID-19 vaccine. Frontrunners are aiming for emergency use authorizations in early 2021. But concerns remain and amid that backdrop, top government experts are discussing safety and efficacy requirements, distribution plans, vaccine confidence, and more.

This webinar will present the facts surrounding COVID-19 vaccination, review the status of vaccine development, and what to anticipate once it’s available. It will also cover all critical and current vaccines available and recommendations for when to vaccinate based on disease status. Vaccines for flu and pneumonia continue to be recommended and may be in short supply due to the demand during the COVID-19 crisis. There is also a Vaccine Assessment Tool that agencies can implement for vaccine compliance. With proper education and information, agencies can dispel the myths and fears and better support the community, public health, patients, staff, and agency compliance.

Attendance certificate provided to self-report CE credits.
