    COVID-19 SKILLED NURSING FACILITIES INITIATIVE

    San Bernardino County Department of Public Health (SBCDPH) implemented a multi-faceted approach to address low vaccination rates of residents and staff at Skilled Nursing Facilities. The Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Vaccination and Education Initiative leads COVID-19 vaccination efforts by educating SNF staff, residents, and their families on the importance of being vaccinated against COVID-19. DPH reached out to SNFs to educate their staff and residents, addressing common myths and misconceptions about vaccines.
