Great Plains QIN is celebrating and recognizing organizations with high staff COVID-19 vaccination rates throughout North Dakota and South Dakota through the recently launched, COVID Staff Vaccination Ambassador Program. Congratulations to organizations who have reached the 75% vaccination mark. This is not easy and your efforts are to be celebrated.
This campaign began with nursing homes and is now being extended to community healthcare partners and service organizations. Please note, regardless if your organization has achieved a 75% or greater staff vaccination rate or not, Great Plains QIN asks that you complete the inquiry form to help understand the vaccination status, barriers and best practices.
All responses are self-reported and voluntary through a Staff Vaccination Inquiry Form. To complete, you will need your staff vaccination percentage rate. If someone is in progress of getting the second vaccination; include in the percentage. If you have not completed the inquiry or have updated numbers, please submit/resubmit as the ambassador listing will be updated weekly.
Ambassadors will be highlighted on the Great Plains QIN Web site, provided a certificate and a customizable press release template that can be used in local media recognizing this accomplishment. There is great value in sharing what has worked well, barriers encountered and helpful resources to assist in increasing staff vaccination rates. Great Plains QIN appreciates your efforts and willingness to share.
