 Calling All Vaccinators: Closing the Next Gap in Covid

Supply and Demand

"Each year the U.S. vaccinates 140 million to 150 million residents against influenza, “but what we’re talking about now is much more intensive,” he said. For covid, the goal is to get vaccines out quickly to all those eligible in a country of 330 million people.

A state-by-state survey would be required to estimate how many total vaccinators are needed nationally, Tan said.

Still, experts are cautiously optimistic that this won’t be a hard problem to fix, pointing to efforts underway to recruit current and retired medical professionals, as well as medical students and nurses in training.

“As long as we continue to see this interest in volunteering, we should have a sufficient workforce to do it,” said Deb Trautman, president and CEO of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing." 

That was from Julie Appleby's story, posted yesterday on KHN. Read more about the resources being tapped -- perhaps you're already among the ranks, or perhaps you soon will be...

Applicants can earn up to 85% of unpaid nursing education debt by committing to working at least two years at a Critical Shortage Facility. Our Director of Policy, Susan Kendig JD, MSN, WHNP-BC, FAANP, recently participated in a webinar explaining more about these opportunities.

Learn more about these opportunities and apply here. The deadline to apply is March 18."

Celebrating and honoring Black History Month

"We will also reckon with the sinister and detrimental effects racism has on the health and well-being of Black communities. The creation and perpetuation of anti-Blackness within a system that promotes white supremacy by the healthcare industry and professions is at the root of clinical negligence and abuse, unethical scientific experimentation and inhumane treatment of Black people. The historical and contemporary fear and mistrust of healthcare professionals and our healthcare system is legitimate.  Nurses and nurse educators must commit to disrupting and dismantling this terrible legacy."

That was from a piece by Azita Emam PhD, MSN, BSN, RN, FAAN, posted on the University of Washington School of Nursing's Dean's Blog at the beginning of this month. Read more of the Dean's post.

March 10: Abortion Provider Appreciation Day

Abortion Provider Appreciation Day is quickly approaching, and we are so excited to show the RNs, NPs, midwives, and nurses in our network some love! To celebrate you, NSRH will join Abortion Care Network and various partners in sexual and reproductive health to uplift your stories on social media.

On March 10th we will take our message to Twitter for a Tweetstorm from 10-11 am PST/ 11-12 pm MST/ 12-1 pm CST/ 1-2 pm EST. We will spend the hour showering abortion providers of all kinds with love and appreciation for their work, wisdom, and contribution to making abortion access possible for so many.

Right now, we are turning to those of you working in abortion care. We want to acknowledge you and any of your abortion care colleagues on our social media pages. Will you submit your story and a high resolution/good quality photo* to [email protected] so we can feature you in our communications for that week? The graphic above is an example of a spotlight from previous years.

*Photos, full names, work locations and social media handles for tagging are requested, but not required for security purposes.

If you need help submitting your story, consider the following question prompts:

  • "I choose to provide abortions/abortion care because..."
  • "It's important for nurses to participate in abortion care because..."
  • "It's important for advanced practice nurses/midwives to be able to provide abortions because..."
  • "As a nurse/midwife/etc., it is important to advocate for abortion access because..."
  • "Access to quality abortion care is important to me as a nurse/midwife because..."

We look forward to hearing from you, and thanks!!!

As the Pandemic Raged, Abortion Access Nearly Flickered Out

Countless quiet acts of heroism were required for those who needed abortions to get them. And still, not everyone did.

"Advocates hope that the Biden administration will further ease the restrictions on mifepristone even after the pandemic ends, allowing it to be picked up at a pharmacy like other drugs. But the prospects for that and other changes remain unclear. On the campaign trail, Biden reversed his long-standing support of the ban on federal funding for abortion known as the Hyde Amendment, declaring, a day after his campaign had said otherwise, that he could no longer support a policy that made health care access “dependent on someone’s zip code.” Reproductive justice groups hope that Biden will go beyond repealing the Trump-era restrictions on abortion—such as the one that stripped federal family-planning funds from clinics that make abortion referrals—and send Congress a budget that strikes down Hyde, which has been in place for more than 40 years. But even with executive action, the Supreme Court’s likely willingness to uphold even the most onerous state restrictions has left experts like Marty concerned.

“We’re going to see an even greater divide over who can and can’t access abortion,” she said. “We are truly going to have the most inequitable system, even more so than we do now.”"

That was the conclusion of Amy Littlefield's feature, posted yesterday on The Nation. Read the stories of people who faced one barrier after another when trying to access abortion care. Thankfully, some were helped by one of the many abortion funds highlighted in the article. In one case, when a person seeking care "finally had the money, her car wouldn’t work. So “someone donated their time as an airplane pilot and flew to Montana and picked up the patient at a small airport, which was like 20 minutes away from her home, because she didn’t have a reliable car to drive all the way from Montana to Colorado.”"

Abortion care is healthcare. It shouldn't require jumping through several unnecessary hoops to get an abortion or, in the end, not receive care at all.
