Mass vaccination programmes are taking place globally in the fight against COVID-19.
It is important to identify the areas in which we can minimise the resultant large amounts of waste. Health Care Without Harm and Practice Greenhealth are offering guidance on 3 topics that can ensure successful protection of the people and planet.
- Sustainable purchasing of gloves
- Management of immunisation waste
- PPE practices for those administering vaccination
Furthermore, we can learn and apply this to other areas of healthcare too - as PPE practices, management of waste and sustainable purchasing of gloves are carried out outside of vaccination administration too.
Click on the link for the guidance documents on each of these topics, and let’s work towards a healthier, sustainable planet! https://practicegreenhealth.org/protection-without-pollution?mc_cid=ec4a52ca0b&mc_eid=5c1cd5f89d
