Today's approval means that this vaccine meets the highest safety and efficacy standards and is a big step in the fight against COVID-19. Long term care providers have been working tirelessly over the past 18 months to protect staff and highly vulnerable residents. AHCA/NCAL undertook the #GetVaccinated campaign earlier this year to encourage staff and residents to get one of the three available vaccines. Today's announcement should provide additional reassurance that the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective.
