Beginning in the month of December 2020, the Covid-19 vaccine produced by Pfizer will be rolled out to healthcare workers and patients around the country.  Vaccinations in several hospitals began on Monday, December 14th.

 Long-term care facilities will be participating in a federal program called The Pharmacy Partnership for Long-Term Care Program. Immunization doses will begin on December 21st.  Participating pharmacies such as CVS, Walgreens, and others will manage the process from beginning to end, including ultra-cold storage.

 SNFs will be breaking up residents and staff into 2 groups to form a vaccination schedule.  Groups will receive their two doses at specified intervals.

 Vaccine produced by Moderna is expected to be approved by the FDA later in December.
