Need Access to Vaccines? We Can Help

As the IPRO QIN-QIO continues its "It's Worth a Shot" campaign in support of the Biden Administration's initiative to increase COVID-19 vaccination rates this season, several nursing homes across our service area have reported that they are having difficulty locating COVID-19 vaccines. Some are experiencing trouble getting the new bivalent booster shots; others are unable to secure the primary series.


Our relationships with pharmacies, schools of pharmacy, and other entities often enable us to meet the needs of nursing homes by providing access to vaccine doses and even staff to administer vaccines. We also provide Vaccine Campaign resources and toolkits to assist nursing homes with planning, scheduling and staffing vaccine clinics for staff, residents, and the community.


For assistance locating vaccine doses, contact us and one of IPRO's pharmacy professionals will be happy to help.
