Vaccinated healthcare personnel, patients, and residents in healthcare settingsThese criteria could also be applied when considering work restrictions for fully vaccinated healthcare personnel with higher-risk exposures, as a strategy to alleviate staffing shortages. Of note, exposed healthcare personnel would not be required to quarantine outside of work.As an exception to the above guidance no longer requiring quarantine for fully vaccinated persons, vaccinated inpatients and residents in healthcare settings should continue to quarantine following an exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19; outpatients should be cared for using appropriate Transmission-Based Precautions. https://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/covid-19/info-by-product/clinical-considerations.html

i would love to hear how you address concerns from young female staff about pregnancy and lactation. fertility has also been a major concern raised which seems to stem from social media.
Amanda Gann
01:14:14
if clinics are being held for a large amount of vaccines in the facility, how are we getting new Residents vaccinated when they are trickling in for admission?
DAVID THOMAS
01:17:07
your slide indicated NOT to counter hesitancy with FACTS. Please talk more about this
MELISSA LATHAM
01:17:15
If we have a new admission that has had one dose could they receive their second dose on day 18 instead of 21 so they can receive their second dose at our facility's third clinic as she will still be in her 14 day quarantine after admission
Cami McKinney
01:19:07
We have an in-house pharmacy, how can we get allocation for the vaccines to be sent directly to our centers?
Kristi Doan
01:19:33
We have heard that LTC staff can go to a CDC location and get vaccinated if they can show proof that they work in a LTC community.

I don't have much more details - it was more around our folks who did not get vaccinated at our clinics

Cami McKinney

Are you aware of any testing available to not only detect presence of the virus but if it's viable versus just shedding of dead virus?
MELISSA LATHAM
01:26:42
If we have a new admission that has had one dose could they receive their second dose on day 18 instead of 21 so they can receive their second dose at our facility's third clinic as she will still be in her 14 day quarantine after admission
