Opinions on exactly when it will happen vary considerably, but all informed parties agree that at least one safe, effective vaccine against COVID-19 will be available in the coming months. The question is…what then? The College of Urgent Care Medicine is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to make sure urgent care operators have a chance to be up to date on plans to facilitate widespread vaccination, as will be detailed in a free webinar next week. The U.S. Vaccination Strategy: An Update with the CDC is scheduled as a live event for Tuesday, October 27, at 1 pm, Central. Presenter Anita Patel, PharmD, will walk attendees through the current information on the status of the vaccines and the CDC’s strategy for their distribution and administration. Dr. Patel leads the Pandemic Medical Care and Countermeasures task force, and serves as the agency’s deputy director of the Vaccine Task Force.
