RCS has released a Dear Provider Letter to Nursing Homes and Assisted Living facilities regarding COVID-19 vaccine

Recently the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced updates to several COVID-19 vaccination websites and introduced the new Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine web page. The following may be useful information related to the COVID-19 vaccine:

  • The COVID-19 vaccination website for healthcare professionals has been recently updated to direct healthcare professionals to clinical information including Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations, storage and handling information, and vaccination provider requirements and support.
  • The new Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine webpage has information specific to Pfizer’s vaccine, including resources to assist providers in storing, handling, and administering the vaccine. The materials now available on the webpage are also attached to this letter. Currently the page contains storage and handling information. They are also working to align this information with ACIP’s clinical recommendations that will be released shortly.
