New resources outline infection-control steps that all health care workers must follow when giving injections from multidose vials, including the COVID-19 vaccine.
Materials are available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Project Firstline website. Project Firstline is a national health care workforce infection prevention and control training collaborative. Downloadable information includes:
- session plans for facilitated trainings (https://bit.ly/3AcyHbr),
- an animated video (https://bit.ly/3fsexSA) and
- a 10-step multidose vaccine vial safety checklist (https://bit.ly/2VjunrY).
The AAP also offers Project Firstline resources for pediatricians, including Project ECHO (Extension for Community Health Care Outcomes) recordings and the AAP’s Pediatrics On Call podcast episodes about infection control at http://bit.ly/AAP-Project-Firstline.
