St. Claire HealthCare Completes COVID-19 Vaccine Compliance Survey

St. Claire HealthCare Completes COVID-19 Vaccine Compliance Survey

Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 has proven to dramatically reduce your risk of serious illness, hospitalization, and death. St. Claire HealthCare (SCH) is doing its part to protect you, your friends, and your family by offering the COVID-19 vaccine for anyone ages 5 years or older.

“Through the COVID-19 Vaccine Program, in addition to the St. Claire Medical Pavilion in Morehead, SCH also offers the COVID-19 vaccine at all of our rural primary care clinics and St. Claire Pediatrics,” said Bookie Ginter, DNP, RN, SCH Primary Care Director. “We strive to make sure the vaccine is available to anyone who wants or needs it.”

The COVID-19 Vaccine Program is a state-funded program that provides vaccines at no cost to children and adults. To play a part in the program, participating healthcare facilities are required by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to participate in an annual compliance survey. SCH is proud to announce that its facilities received no deficiencies during their recent COVID-19 Vaccine Compliance Survey!

Requirements of the survey include a written vaccine management plan, compliance with vaccine storage and handling, detailed vaccine documentation, up-to-date records maintenance, patient education and teaching, and clinical COVID-19 knowledge and skills. All COVID-19 Vaccine Compliance Survey results are reported to the CDC.

“We want to counter any hesitancies through education with the vaccine and help protect them the best we can by making it easily available to them,” said Ginter. “We want our patients to have as much confidence in the vaccine as we do, and that starts with offering the vaccine at a facility they trust.”
