Long Term Care Vaccinations

LONG TERM CARE VACCINATIONS

From December 2020 to early April 2021, the federal government, in partnership with pharmacies, operated a program to vaccinate staff and residents at Long Term Care Facilities including:

  • Skilled Nursing Facilities
  • Assisted Living Facilities
  • Continuing care residential communities
  • Residential care communities/adult family homes
  • HUD 202 low-income senior housing
  • Intermediate care facilities for individuals with development disabilities
  • Veteran's homes

 

As part of the federal government’s Long Term Care Facility (LTCF) program, pharmacies vaccinated 130,669 residents and 97,094 staff members at over 1,700 New York-based Long Term Care Facilities. New York State re-allocated leftover doses from the Federal LTCF program to the state’s healthcare distribution system.

Since the conclusion of the federal government’s Long Term Care Facility program, New York State continues to support vaccination of staff and residents at facilities across the state:

  • ​The Department of Health issued regulations to require that nursing homes and adult care facilities offer existing personnel and residents an opportunity to receive the first or any required next dose of the COVID-19 vaccine within 14 days of adoption, and that they offer all new personnel and residents within 14 days of being hired or admitted.
  • The Department of Health continues to work with individual facilities and associations to eliminate barriers to vaccine access and administration. ​
