This has driven the demand for immunization supplies from LTC facilities. Nursing care centers have emerged as one of the highest providers of therapeutic and vaccination services of all types.

In the U.S., the increasing burden on hospitals due to heart diseases, diabetes, and dementia requires long-term care & repeated hospitalization. According to the American Hospital Association, the U.S. witnessed 36,241,815 hospitalizations in 2021. Hospitals in the U.S. are currently focused on the treatment of COVID-19 leading to the neglect of other chronic health issues.
