Please join the National Indian Health Board (NIHB) for a Tribal infection control learning community (TICLC) webinar: Minimizing Potential COVID-19 Exposure During Flu Vaccination. This webinar will provide an overview on how to minimize COVID-19 during flu vaccination for Tribal healthcare workers and patients. The discussion will focus on infection prevention and control (IPC) strategies and tools for frontline works as we see an increase in COVID-19 cases and move further into flu season.

The learning community is focused on knowledge sharing and members are encouraged to share information and build relationships with each other. Please submit questions ahead of time to make sure the presenters can get to them. Come prepared to ask questions or share your own insights and experiences.

This webinar is open to any interested person, but is likely most relevant to Tribal healthcare personal, Tribal frontline healthcare workers, infection control officers and preventionists, who want to learn more about how to minimize SARS-CoV-2 infection while providing flu vaccination. 

Note: Continuing education credits will not be offered for this webinar.
