CDC Expands COVID-19 Provider Vaccine Agreements to LTC Facilities
The Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) announced it is taking steps to make it easier for LTC facilities to administer the COVID-19 vaccine to staff and residents.

This move comes after strong advocacy by AHCA/NCAL.

located on the CDC website.
Most of the requirements outlined in this agreement are steps you already follow for other vaccines such as influenza. Read more here
