Empowering LTC Providers in the Fight Against Respiratory Diseases with GetVaccinated Resources

vaccine; COVID-19

In the ever-evolving battle against respiratory diseases, long term care (LTC) providers play a pivotal role in safeguarding the health of our most vulnerable populations. As rates of respiratory diseases remain high across the country, your ongoing efforts in encouraging vaccinations among residents and staff are more crucial than ever.

Residents in LTC communities are among those at the highest risk of severe disease and illness from common respiratory viruses, including the flu, RSV, and COVID-19. The good news is that safe, effective, and accessible vaccines are available to protect these individuals from serious illness or even death.

AHCA/NCAL has developed comprehensive resources to assist LTC providers in promoting vaccinations, educating and offering vaccines to staff and residents (also fulfilling a regulatory requirement), and navigating the complicated commercial market for COVID-19 vaccines.

We encourage you to download and share the latest information to foster vaccinations using AHCA/NCAL's #GetVaccinated toolkit available at getvaccinated.us. Featured resources include:

  • Reimbursement Guide: A detailed FAQ section on vaccine payment options.
  • Template Letters: Customizable for the organization's Medical Director to communicate effectively with residents and staff.
  • Talking Points: Designed to assist in facilitating vaccination conversations.
