(from event page) Strategic planning for the 2020-2021 flu season during the COVID-19 pandemic is critically important to ensure states do not experience dual epidemics this year. NASHP, in partnership with AcademyHealth and Immunize Colorado, provides a national overview of flu prevention priorities from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and a closer look at state strategies in Arizona and Illinois.
Speakers will discuss how states can ensure equitable access to the flu vaccine, including expanding access to immunizations through pharmacies and other delivery sites to reach vulnerable populations, and various payment and reimbursement strategies. This webinar is funded by the CDC.
