The first COVID vaccines are likely to be available on a limited basis before the end of the year. Healthcare workers (including SNF nursing home staff) will be among the first groups eligible to receive the vaccines. We recognize there are many questions about the safety and efficacy of the COVID vaccines that need to be answered so health care workers are willing to get the vaccine.

To provide timely, accurate, and on-going information, ASHNHA will be distributing a weekly document with updates on the COVID vaccines. The first update focuses on safety of COVID vaccines.

We encourage you to share this information with your staff including nursing staff, food service, therapists, administrative, etc. You can forward the link, print the document for distribution, download and attach to an email. You are welcome to customize or cut and paste into other newsletters.

If you have any questions or topics you would like to see addressed in future updates contact [email protected]
