CDC and CMS Present Stories from the Field: Immunization Strategies for Long Term Care
The CDC and CMS are hosting a webinar for QIN-QIOs and nursing home leaders, medical directors, directors of nursing and infection preventionists interested in collaborating with their staff, residents and families to maximize COVID-19 vaccination rates at their facilities.
Wednesday, January 31, 2024 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET.
Despite the vulnerability of nursing home residents to COVID-19 infection, only 37% of nursing home residents were up to date with their COVID-19 vaccinations as of December 31, 2023. Join this Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) webinar to hear directly from nursing home teams that have developed successful strategies to overcome COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy and fatigue, schedule onsite vaccination clinics and address staff turnover to ensure residents receive timely vaccinations.
