Leading Health Organizations Unite to Implement National COVID-19 Vaccination Plan

National associations working together to support state-based activities in vaccination effort.

A collaboration of healthcare and public health organizations have united to form the National Associations’ COVID Vaccine Leadership Council to support implementation of the nation’s COVID-19 vaccination plan. The council is co-chaired by the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and the American Pharmacists Association (APhA).

Each of the 19 council members have been directly involved in supporting and sustaining ongoing efforts to prepare for COVID-19 vaccine distribution and administration. The council’s members will strategize, discuss, exchange, and work toward solving some of the challenges expected as jurisdictions begin to implement the CDC COVID-19 vaccination playbook at the state level. The coalition’s work will complement the efforts of CDC, HHS, and Operation Warp Speed, and support state-level efforts.

Tabula Rasa HealthCare and the American Pharmacists Association Launch Medication Safety Campaign

Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc. (TRHC) (NASDAQ: TRHC), a healthcare technology company advancing the field of medication safety, in collaboration with the American Pharmacists Association (APhA), today launched the campaign, “Medication Safety Starts with a Pharmacist,” aimed at educating consumers on the importance of medication safety, the risks of adverse drug events (ADEs), and the essential role of the pharmacist on the patient care team. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), ADEs contribute to more than 1 million emergency room visits and over 250,000 hospitalizations in the United States, many of which are preventable. The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced many unknowns, including the use of various repurposed treatments, and soon, new vaccines to combat COVID-19. Patients need to be aware of how these potential treatments may interact with their current medication regimens. Pharmacists are here to help keep patients safer, and healthier.
