As the State of Illinois continues managing the spread of COVID-19, new Emergency Rules for Vaccination of Facility Personnel in long-term care settings went into effect in October. One of the requirements is that facilities must provide 90-minutes of training on the COVID-19 vaccine for employees who are not vaccinated.
Within 14 days after the adoption of these emergency amendments, each facility is required to provide its unvaccinated staff a minimum of 90 minutes of clear and accurate instruction covering vaccine education, effectiveness, benefits, risks, common reactions, hesitancy, and misinformation. Records of training shall be made available to the Department of Public Health upon request.
Forum is hosting this special 90-minute webinar to fulfill those requirements for unvaccinated employees. The webinar will incorporate the approved training and educational resources outlined by the state. Certificates of completion will be provided following the webinar.
