With the fastest vaccine development in history, even many health professionals have lingering doubts. For those in search of a vaccine for themselves or their family members, the varying rollout strategies at the state and municipal level have led to confusion and frustration.

Enclara Pharmacia has developed the Vaccination Considerations in Hospice and Palliative Care Toolkit to help healthcare professionals better understand the new COVID vaccines from both safety and efficacy standpoints. It also covers other vaccines that may be administered in end-of-life care. You can use what you learn here to help allay concerns of your staff, patients and families.
Experts now estimate that ending the pandemic through herd immunity will require at least 80% of the population to be vaccinated – a lofty goal when many are resistant to getting the shot. The good news is, the closer we get to that number, the sooner life can get back to normal. Every little bit helps and you have a part to play. Download the toolkit today to start the conversation.
