On Friday, October 16, the White House announced the Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Care Program—a national vaccine distribution program for long-term care residents. Importantly, on Tuesday, October 27, the deadline to register for the Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Program was extended to Friday, November 6. We strongly encourage all long-term care facilities to review this information and register as soon as possible, if you have not done so already. This is critical to ensuring our vulnerable residents are among the first to receive a vaccine when it becomes available.
The COVID-19 vaccine will likely become available in phases over the coming months. To prepare, the federal government has partnered with CVS and Walgreens to distribute and administer the vaccine to residents in long-term care facilities. This program is free of charge and covers all of the reporting requirements associated with the vaccine. Vaccination for health care workers will be handled by states, and will likely take place in early phases of distribution.
