Primary care has a key role in the organisation and administration of vaccines.
As 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 vaccinations
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
