New Resource Supports Increasing COVID-19 Vaccinations Among Certified Nursing Assistants

A new guide released by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is designed to help nursing home leaders build confidence in COVID-19 vaccinations among certified nursing assistants (CNAs).

The guide sheds light on CNAs’ reasons for not getting vaccinated and offers practical advice on how to have conversations about the vaccine, what kinds of messages to use, and how to support CNAs in making their decisions.

Also included are posters, information cards, and designs for pins to celebrate vaccination status.
