The nation has a clear picture of COVID-19 vaccination rates in nursing homes now that data are regularly reported. Has your facility reached the 75% staff and 90% resident goals for vaccination?
To help improve your vaccination rates, we encourage you to attend this webinar and learn directly from the researchers behind The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Invest in Trust: A Guide for Building COVID-19 Vaccine Trust Among Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs). The research in this guide includes input from scholars, a deep review of academic literature, and a recent survey of nursing-home workers.
This presentation will shed light on reasons for not getting vaccinated and the challenges staff face to getting a vaccine. It will also offer practical advice on how to have conversations about the vaccine, what kinds of messages to use, and how to support staff in making their decisions. This can help those saying no to the vaccine get to yes.
