A mobile NJ EMS Task Force is driving COVID-19 vaccines out to where people live — vaccinating those who can’t get to regular vaccination sites. The mobile team is partnering with the Visiting Nurse Association of Central Jersey and local officials.
Meanwhile, state health officials are waiting to launch their “triplets” — three mega-vans outfitted for major on-the-road vaccination campaigns.
NJ EMS Task Force planner Frank Intessimoni talked with NJTV's NJ Spotlight News
correspondent Brenda Flanagan today about the Task Force’s collaboration with the state and the Visiting Nurse Association of New Jersey on a new mobile vaccination program.
A team of medical professionals, including nurses, a paramedic and EMTs were on hand Tuesday to provide vaccinations to a senior community in Middletown. The program is part of a joint effort to get more vaccinations to underserved communities and to get more vaccines out to New Jersey residents.
The mobile vaccine program is part of the evolution of the NJEMSTF’s involvement on the frontlines of the pandemic, which began in March 2020, and represents the work of multiple agencies working side-by-side to help the community.
Flanagan’s report will be broadcast this evening.
