About 9 Million COVID-19 Vaccinations Completed in the USA
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its website on January 11, 2021, indicating 8,987,322 first-doses vaccines administered in the USA. And, 937,028 of those vaccinations have occurred in Long-Term Care Facilities.
The CDC previously stated on January 7, 2021, the Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Care (LTC) Program is facilitating on-site vaccination of residents and staff at more than 75,000 enrolled long-term care facilities while reducing the burden on administrators, clinical leadership, and health departments.
The LTC program provides end-to-end management of the COVID-19 vaccination process at no cost to facilities, including cold chain management, on-site vaccinations, and fulfillment of reporting requirements.
The CDC stated it 'expects the program services to continue on-site at participating LTC facilities for approximately 2-months from the first vaccination date. After the initial phase of vaccinations, facilities may continue working with the federal pharmacy partner they were matched with or shift to another pharmacy provider that is enrolled with the jurisdiction to provide ongoing COVID-19 vaccination.'
