Surge In Hiring? – Uncomplicate Your Vaccination Staff Scheduling
As you hire additional staff to meet new vaccination services for your patients, you’ll need more transparency over the entire scheduling process to make sure you can cover shifts, and that each shift is covered by an employee with the right credential.
Vaccination services are now being offered in non-traditional settings:
- Urgent Care
- Pop-Up Events
- Employer Wellness services
Forward-thinking healthcare service providers are hiring more staff to meet these critical needs. By using healthcare scheduling software for your vaccination clinic services, you can quickly schedule your staff and have transparency over your daily operations.

Pharmacies are seeing a surge in patients seeking vaccinations. Many offer discounted or free vaccinations to entice patients to keep up to date on their vaccinations. Pharmacy employees have been crucial to helping the US implement rapid testing for COVID-19. Pharmacies need to make sure they can manage their daily pharmacy operations in addition to having additional or separate qualified staff to be able to perform vaccinations against deadline diseases and be ready when a vaccine for COVID-19 is available to the general public.
Urgent Cares and stand-alone clinics have seen an increase in patients due to their flexible hours and scheduling. Parents find it easier to schedule appointments and see a provider for their children’s vaccinations and immunizations. Once a vaccine is available for COVID-19, Urgent Care providers will need to make sure they have rules-based staff scheduling for patients looking for immunizations.
Pop-Up Vaccination Events
These events are very popular for county health departments and local awareness groups. Vaccination events usually happen right before school starts to make sure children are vaccinated against the flu or offer other childhood immunizations. These groups need to make sure that properly credentialed staff are available to administer the injection or nasal spray flu vaccinations at these pop-up vaccination events. Once the COVID-19 vaccination is widely available communities will be looking for solutions from agencies and health departments.
Employer Sponsored Vaccination Clinics
Corporate vaccination clinics make it easy for employers to make sure their staff is vaccinated against the flu or other vaccination. They make it easy for their employees by hosting these events on-site with qualified staff performing the vaccination. Typically they will use their in-house medical teams or outsource to a local pharmacy or healthcare staffing agency. These teams need to prepare and have the proper training for these onsite events. As COVID-19 vaccines are being developed, employers need to think about how to appropriately staff these events and keep track of credentials of staff performing these injections..
