How to access future COVID-19 vaccine

NCPA November 17, 2020

HHS recently announced partnerships with several pharmacy networks to be network administrators for vaccine distribution. Currently, community pharmacies have five pathways to provide COVID-19 vaccines when available: CPESN® USA, AmerisourceBergen (Good Neighbor Pharmacy/Elevate), LeaderNET and Medicine Shoppe (Cardinal Health's PSAOs), Health Mart, or through your state health department. On the LTC side, in addition to access through state health departments, GeriMed, Innovatix, and MHA have entered into agreements with the CDC to serve their pharmacies. If you are a combo LTC shop with non-LTC business, you will also need to work with one of the five entities above or your state health department for the retail portion of your business.
