As an emergency physician, you can help increase the number of people who are vaccinated. On June 11, ACEP President Mark Rosenberg, DO, MBA, FACEP, spoke with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Rochelle Walensky, MD, MPH, about ED vaccination programs during a live-streamed White House Town Hall. Dr. Rosenberg was one of five health care leaders chosen to discuss innovative approaches to patient outreach and vaccine programs with moderators Anthony Fauci, MD; Dr. Walensky; Vivek Murthy, MD, MBA; Marcella Nunez-Smith, MD, MHS; and Bechara Choucair, MD.
ACEP encourages you to consider working with your institution to provide vaccines to appropriate patients who will be discharged from the emergency department. We have resources to help you get started.
