Hospitals encouraged to administer booster shots to those seeking LTC prior to discharge
The AHA sent out a special bulletin in early January to all hospitals encouraging patients be vaccinated prior to discharge to congregate settings, which includes nursing homes and assisted living. We hope this will increase the number of individuals being admitted to facilities who are up to date with their vaccines.
Booster shots in the elderly and those with underlying health conditions have continued to show dramatic protection against hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 variants, including Omicron.
