Whether you need resources for communicating with patients or the latest guidance from the CDC and WHO, this is your destination for the most valuable coronavirus-related information, tools and support.
Independents Join Major Retailers in Gaining Access to COVID-19 Vaccine
AmerisourceBergen has reached an agreement with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to include Good Neighbor Pharmacy and the Elevate Provider Network members in the Federal Pharmacy Partnership Strategy for COVID-19 Vaccination.
To support access, AmerisourceBergen will serve as a network administrator and place orders with the CDC on behalf of qualified and eligible Good Neighbor Pharmacy and Elevate Provider Network members. AmerisourceBergen will receive a direct allocation of COVID-19 vaccine for independent retail pharmacy customers once there is adequate supply of COVID-19 vaccine to support broader vaccination efforts. COVID-19 vaccine will be distributed by the CDC’s central distributor.
“Independent community pharmacies have been fearless and have risen to every challenge that COVID-19 has presented this past year. Independent pharmacies are critical sites of care in their communities year-round and many Americans turn to their local pharmacy for a variety of immunizations annually,” said Brian Nightengale, President of Good Neighbor Pharmacy. “We are beyond proud to help our independent pharmacies gain access to COVID-19 vaccine. They are already poised to join this next phase in the fight against the coronavirus and continue to support their communities.”
This effort will help jurisdictions augment access to COVID-19 vaccine when supply increases and vaccination is recommended for individuals beyond the initial critical populations. With more than 90% of people living within 5 miles of a community pharmacy, pharmacies have unique reach and ability to provide access to COVID-19 vaccine and support broad vaccination efforts. This program will provide critical vaccination services for the U.S. population, with vaccine administered at community pharmacy locations at no cost to recipients. The program will be implemented in close coordination with jurisdictions to ensure optimal COVID-19 vaccination coverage and vaccine access nationwide.
