How Patient Engagement Tools Can Help Ensure 2nd COVID-19 Vaccine Doses
The COVID-19 vaccines certainly aren't the first inoculations to require multiple doses to achieve maximum efficacy.
A poll released this past month from DrFirst found that 43% of respondents said they had received a vaccine in the past requiring multiple doses. But 13% said they did not get the second dose, or weren't sure if they did so. Residents cited numerous reasons for missing the follow-up dose, including failing to receive a reminder from their provider, not realizing they needed additional doses, missing the appointment, or just plain forgetting.
Industry leaders have pointed to the potential for patient engagement tools to assist in speeding the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, particularly where initial outreach is involved.
