03/25/2021 ACTION ALERT: Build Support for Vaccine Allocation Congressional Sign-On Letter!
On the heels of last week’s NACDS RxIMPACT campaign to increase vaccine allocation, momentum continues with a new congressional sign-on letter! NACDS RxIMPACT needs your help today telling Democratic members of Congress to urge the White House COVID-19 response team to swiftly increase the COVID-19 vaccine allocation to pharmacies – so constituents can set appointments in these highly trusted and convenient healthcare destinations!

As you know, retail pharmacy has risen to the moment in the COVID-19 national response, showcasing its dedication to testing and vaccinations.  Fully leveraging retail pharmacies – where 90 percent of Americans live within 5 miles of a store – can accelerate vaccinations, especially in rural communities and in racial and ethnic populations severely affected by healthcare disparities. Community pharmacies have the capability to administer 100 million vaccine doses in 30 days, assuming vaccine supply is in place and patient demand is strong.  

U.S. Representative Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX) is leading a congressional sign-on letter urging the Biden Administration to take immediate action. NACDS RxIMPACT needs your help asking Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives to support this important letter that specifically calls for substantially more COVID vaccines allocated to local pharmacies. Help NACDS RxIMPACT advocate for an increase in COVID-19 vaccine allocation to pharmacies and urgently scale and sustain the Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. NACDS urges increased pharmacy allocations in the federal and state programs alike.  We need your help urging leaders to re-balance vaccine allocation and allow this critical program to be more fully utilized for the benefit of all Americans. 

To use our online letter-writing system, simply type in your contact information once, click the submit message button, and the system will generate separate letters to your U.S. Representative if he or she is a Democrat and to U.S. President Biden.

Our patients, profession, and industry are depending on you. If you have any questions about this communication, please contact Heidi Ecker, NACDS Senior Director of Government Affairs and Political Engagement via email at Hecker@nacds.org or phone at 703-837-4121.
