Three Ways Providers Can Navigate COVID-19 Vaccination Rollout Successfully
While the availability of a COVID-19 vaccine is undeniably good news, timely and effective vaccine communication calls for swift action on the part of hospital administrators and clinicians as they navigate a fragmented and concerning response by government agencies to ensure its successful deployment and avoid placing further stress on already overburdened and exhausted healthcare workers.
Providers need to create awareness of their vaccine policies and procedures and prepare patients with information before they get vaccinated.
Most hospitals will offer vaccination scheduling directly through their portals, but there are already concerns about compliance with second dose vaccination — especially if the recipient experienced side effects with the first dose.
Just as we learned from the early adopters of patient outreach at the start of the pandemic, the most carefully laid plans must change as the virus evolves.
