As COVID-19 Cases Rise Again, the Importance of Vaccine Scheduling Grows
As reported by numerous news organizations, including this story from CNBC, COVID-19 cases and deaths are on the rise again after several weeks of declining numbers in both categories. CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said the COVID-19 pandemic has now become a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”
“We are seeing outbreaks of cases in parts of the country that have low vaccination coverage because unvaccinated people are at risk, and communities that are fully vaccinated are generally faring well,” Walensky said.
Fierce Healthcare reports that President Biden’s administration is ramping up efforts to increase vaccinations in areas with the lowest rates of vaccinated citizens.
The pressing need to continue vaccinating large portions of the population against COVID-19 underscores the importance of the role of the retail pharmacy, and in turn, pharmacies’ ability to efficiently schedule vaccinations without disrupting their workflow.

More important, CareScheduler enables retail pharmacies to provide the trusted, accessible vaccine administration services that are needed now more than ever to help reduce the alarming growth in COVID-19 infections due to the large numbers of people who still have not been vaccinated.
