COVID-19 Resources for Members

AAHCM is abreast of the latest information surrounding the COVID-19 vaccine and distribution. To continue to support our members through the quickly evolving national COVID-19 vaccine roll-out, AAHCM has assembled an HBMC COVID-19 Vaccine Response Team comprised of members of the AAHCM Board of Directors, Education and Policy committees, and Academy volunteers who have coordinated their efforts to create a Vaccine Patient Education FAQ handout, compile COVID-19 Vaccine Resource Information, and engage with policymakers to advocate for Home Care Medicine providers in distribution decisions.

Stay up-to-date on the latest Academy alerts and provided resources on our website Here.
