This webinar is Part I of the Managing Risk When Administering the COVID-19 Vaccine series. To register for this series, click here.

The U.S. COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution Plan rollout of both the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines has begun and other vaccine candidates are entering their final phases of testing. Along with hospitals, health centers have been identified as key players in the successful distribution of vaccines across the country. Health center staff members are getting vaccinated, and on an almost daily basis, health centers are reacting to new information about their role in distribution going forward. 

As more and more vaccine becomes available to distribute across the health center network, health centers must evaluate the risk management considerations associated with COVID-19 vaccination of both staff and patients. In this interactive two-part webinar series, we will explore legal and compliance considerations associated with the COVID-19 vaccine and how health centers can establish their own distribution plans while mitigating the relevant risks associated with vaccinating staff and patients.  

Please note: This webinar series is offered at a discounted price of $198 for all Health Center Compliance Premium Plan Subscribers. For more information on our Premium Plan, click here or Contact Us.
