Preparing for a COVID-19 Vaccine

A COVID-19 vaccine is on the minds of many senior care providers. Operation Warp Speed is the Center for Disease Control’s federal vaccine acceleration program to bring a COVID-19 vaccination to reality as soon as it’s safe to do so. Phil Fogg, CEO of Consonus Healthcare is interviewing Neil Marshall, President of Consonus Pharmacy because Neil’s team has been closely monitoring developments and are actively engaged in the planning process.

Long term care pharmacies, like Consonus, are working directly with members of Operation Warp Speed in an effort to be included in the federal COVID vaccine initiative for Phase 1A distribution plans. Consonus has a member of the Board of Directors for the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) and is actively involved to identify and advocate for the role of long term care pharmacies and pharmacists in a successful deployment, administration, and reporting of any vaccine.

Phil and Neil discuss what providers should know right now. Please take a moment to review the most recent information by watching the video below.
