Role-playing, planning for earthquakes, mass training: US health care centers prep for arrival of COVID-19 vaccine

“We did our final run-through exercise today,” said Dr. Nasim Afsar, chief operating officer for UCI Health in Orange, California. The team role-played the entire process, from vaccine arriving at the loading dock to an injection being given. … “We’ve got a detailed plan for when it arrives, involving our public safety staff and our police force. It will be stored in a badge-access-only space with cameras and will be monitored 24/7,” Afsar said.
