The UBC Primary Care Innovation Support Unit recently launched the Primary Care COVID-19 Immunization Toolkit. While the current vaccines are available in limited supply and being provided first to highest risk individuals and to healthcare workers, information is changing quickly. This toolkit can help primary care offices in Canada support the COVID-19 immunization effort – even those not currently providing immunizations.
If you are talking with your patients about immunizations but not giving immunizations yourself:
You can use parts of this guide to help discuss immunizations, vaccine hesitancy, etc. with your patients. Use this toolkit to dip into particular questions you might have and find resources and links to things like handouts, etc.
If you are planning to run a COVID-19 immunization clinic in your office:
If you are a clinic manager or medical director or the person who will be planning COVID immunizations in your clinic, you can review the different parts of this toolkit to give you step by step ideas on how to do that. You can review the whole site and it will walk you through the major planning steps or you can jump in and out of specific areas that are relevant to you today.
