State Issues New Vaccination Guidance and Consent Forms
Members should note that the State issued updated vaccination guidance on Sept. 29th that includes an updated screening and consent form for anyone receiving a primary or booster vaccination. This particular consent form is not required but may be used. Please note that if your pharmacy has its own consent form, that too may be utilized.
LeadingAge National Provides Booster Toolkit
This week, LeadingAge National released a Booster Toolkit to help providers connect with pharmacy partners providing the Pfizer booster. Please note that the Department of Health (DOH) issued two Dear Administrator Letters (DALs) last week to nursing homes and adult care facilities (ACFs) requiring facilities that are having difficulty partnering with pharmacies to reach out to the Department. Click here to view those DALs. Please feel free to reach out to LeadingAge NY for assistance as well. Members in Western New York should note that Wegman's has expressed an interest in assisting members with vaccination.
