The success of an organization is dependent on the success of its employees. Focus on the employees is paramount. With this in mind, a successful program ensures understanding the potential rewards and obstacles that an impending employee vaccination program will bring.

"The development of the COVID-19 vaccine was a modern miracle in science, with successful collaboration among researchers, pharmaceuticals, governments and citizens in its design, testing, and production. Yet, the delivery of this highly effective vaccine has been suboptimal, highlighting the need and opportunities for improved health care delivery."
"Working in rural health requires a lot of collaboration. Not only because of the limited resources, but because rural health organizations tend to help each other - just like rural communities come together in a time of need - so do rural hospitals. If our success in employee vaccination can help another hospital with their employee vaccination - the spirit of working rural continues."

"Vaccination not only protects me from getting severely sick due to Coronavirus, it gives me confidence to keep serving my COVID patients on the inpatient unit, which was lacking when the pandemic started!"
"The miraculous scientific achievement of safe and effective vaccine development will only save lives to the extent that healthcare organizations are prepared to deliver shots in arms. Gunnison answered that call, and it's worth our time to learn from their success."
“The COVID-19 pandemic has further weakened the ability of rural healthcare providers to meet the needs of the vulnerable communities they serve. In order to grow more resilient in this unstable landscape, it is critical that rural hospitals take a different approach towards longstanding principles in labor management and materials sourcing.”
"I am delighted to have had this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study vaccination during a pandemic. I am so grateful to share this experience with my peers!"
