Health centers must consider multiple priorities when planning for mass vaccination, more so now during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this 90-minute webinar, we will discuss strategies health centers can employ when planning mass vaccination clinics at their health center or a satellite / mobile site.    

Part 1: General strategies for holding a successful mass vax clinic. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) will provide some general framework around the need for mass vaccination, an overview of existing guidelines/best practices, and discuss available resources for health centers planning for mass vaccination. CPCA staff will be present to discuss issues around licensing, including CDPH regulations and flexibilities; and liability, including HRSA scope of practice. We will also have a health center share the logistics of standing up a mass vax clinic, including operational strategies, staffing models, and reimbursement.  

Part 2: Strategies for small- and medium-sized health centers and clinics. This session will be tailored to unique challenges that small- to medium-sized health centers face when planning for mass vaccinations. We will have a health center present on the strategies that they successfully employed to stand up a mass vax clinic. Topics covered will include:     

-Vaccine supply  
-Patient recruitment/registration  
-Staffing/workforce (shortages, etc.)  
-Location, location, location 

  • Understand various considerations for holding a mass vaccination clinic, including licensing, liability, and logistics.
