The deadline for senior living providers, including assisted living and independent living community providers, to opt-in to HHS’ pharmacy partnership program for vaccine management has been extended to Friday, November 6. (The previous deadline was Friday, October 30.)
The program, announced Oct. 16 by the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Defense, will enable long-term care residents and staff members to be vaccinated against COVID-19 free of charge to them when a vaccine becomes available. As of Friday, more than 9,000 long-term care providers had signed up for the program, according to HHS.
