A Colorado urgent care operator has been suspended from participating in the state’s COVID-19 vaccination program after an unannounced site inspection revealed “irregularities” ranging from the manner in which the vaccine was stored, high vaccine wastage, and inappropriate administration to patients outside of the recommended age group. To make matters worse, the state now considers any vaccinations administered at the now-suspended clinics to be invalid; patients who got their shots there will have to receive either one or two more shots, depending on which vaccine they received originally, in order to be considered fully immunized. Let this serve as a reminder that vaccine storage and following state-mandated procedures are not just matters of patient safety, but also necessary for you to continue to conduct your business and offer care at all.
