Health and vision plans are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The AOA has assessed and consolidated the information coming from plans and is continually updating the information as plans' procedures are ever-changing during this time of public emergency. To ensure doctors have the most up-to-date information on a specific plan, they should use these resources and follow the provided links to the plans' respective COVID-19 response pages.
As AOA encourages federal recognition of optometry as COVID-19 vaccinators, doctors can access new COVID-19 vaccinator resources, information and guidance with an upcoming #AskAOA webinar.
U.S. health authorities spur next phase of COVID-19 vaccination rollout, dramatically expanding supply and administration sites, as optometry explores going from vaccinated to vaccinator.
The AOA and state associations are working to ensure doctors of optometry will be included among initial COVID-19 vaccinations to health care workers, preserving Americans’ access to eye care.
