Mass Vaccine Clinic Webinar and Website Resources
Mass vaccination clinics allow rapid and efficient administration of vaccines to many people over a relatively short period of time. This approach can help during delivery of routinely recommended vaccines such as influenza. It can also be used once COVID-19 vaccines are released. How can you plan and manage such a daunting undertaking?
On October 15, the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) hosted Mass Vaccination Clinics: Challenges and Best Practices webinar. During this 1.75-hour session, a panel of experienced providers described their successes and challenges in conducting mass vaccination clinics. The panelists highlighted best practices and offered practical information for conducting a successful mass vaccination clinic.
The archived webinar is found on IAC’s newest website: www.Mass-Vaccination-Resources.org. The website features a searchable list of resources for a variety of venues, including curbside, drive-through, and walk-through clinics; mobile medical vans; pharmacies; and schools. The database contains guidance documents, toolkits, publications, and other helpful resources that can be adapted to your community or individual healthcare setting.
