COVID-19 Vaccination Administration: Staffing and Guidance

As supplies of COVID-19 vaccines increase—with widening access to larger demographics happening almost daily—how will you make the vaccination administration process as efficient as possible? To make sure you can handle the needs of your community, a nimble plan of action is necessary to ensure that both your facility and staff are ready to serve at a moment’s notice.

To be successful, healthcare providers must answer a variety of questions to create a cohesive plan that satisfies the needs of a large influx of patients and supports your existing staff and leaders.


Vaccination Administration: Key Questions for Formulating a Plan of Action

  • How quickly do you need to begin services?
  • Where will the vaccines be administered? (offsite, onsite, in a local parking lot)
  • In how many locations and in what geographies?
  • How many vaccinations will be administered each day?
  • Who will coordinate the administration of vaccinations for your internal staff?
  • How will appointments be handled as new demographics become eligible for vaccines? 
  • Are your onsite nurses and ancillary staff busy with day-to-day duties, creating the need for contingent labor? If so, how many?
  • How will you staff for fluctuations when supplies aren’t consistent?
  • How will you address patient questions about the vaccinations being administered?
  • Can your staff address the needs of non- or limited-English speaking patients?

These are just some of the considerations you’ll need to address before opening your doors to an eager public who is ready to have the COVID-19 vaccine administered when it’s their turn.
