For emergency physicians who may encounter patients and family members who are vaccine hesitant, ACEP has developed some resources to help you begin a dialogue.
ACEP’s Diversity and Inclusion Section created a poster to place in your waiting areas that encourages talking to the emergency physicians about any vaccine-related questions and includes a QR code to the national vaccine finder.
They have also created a flyer for you to share with patients and family members that directly addresses some common concerns and questions held by those who are hesitant to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
Find even more patient resources at ACEP’s public website – emergencyphysicians.org/COVIDvaccineInfo
There are also Smart Phrases available to copy and paste into your hospital's electronic health records (EHR) system to automatically create content related to COVID-19 vaccines in multiple languages on the patient’s discharge papers.
