Good News: Yesterday, Feds Approve Moving Forward with Scheduling ALF Vacccinations
Yesterday morning, several members contacted FSLA after they had received email notices from the pharmacies stating that they were not allowed to begin sheduling vaccines in ALFs. This was not a state mandate, but rather a federal mandate because of the low number of initial vaccines shipped to the state.
James McFaddin, FSLA's lobbyist, reached out to the Governor's Chief of Staff and the Department of Health's Chief of Staff and they immediately made calls to inquire about the delay in vacccinations for ALFs.
We are happy to report that DOH's Chief of Staff received the go ahead yesterday afternoon and informed CVS and Walgreens that they could begin scheduling vaccines in ALF communities. So, scheduling for ALFs should begin commencing soon after the holidays.
