Prepare Now! Smaller Practices May Eventually Administer the COVID-19 Vaccine

Mar 16, 2021

The rollout of COVID-19 vaccines thus far has largely bypassed smaller physician practices. But these practices may become involved as more vaccine doses become available.

Physicians can prepare in advance to become aware of key risk management considerations related to this effort, along with strategies for handling the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine in a practice setting.

ISMIE’s new resource for policyholders, COVID-19 vaccines: Guidance for healthcare professionals, covers numerous key topics related to administering the vaccine, including:
  • Liability protections for healthcare professionals involved in administering the COVID-19 vaccine
  • How to address questions from patients who may be reluctant to receive the vaccine
  • Maintaining a temperature log for the vaccine storage area
  • How to handle an acute vaccine reaction in a patient
