The program is designed to assist the elderly, people with disabilities, those without transportation and those not able to easily travel to receive a vaccine.
“In-home vaccinations are an important option to help ensure everyone who wants to receive a vaccine has access to one,” said Will Adkins, executive director and president of Pulse Clinical Alliance. “Through this program, Miami-Dade County residents who are otherwise unable to go get a vaccine can easily sign up online, receive a call to schedule an appointment and simply wait for the clinical team to arrive.”READ MORE: Report: 25 AR-15 Rifles Missing From Miami Police Department's Inventory
Vaccines will be administered in recipients’ homes by a two-person clinical team, including a nurse practitioner and either a licensed practical nurse or certified nursing assistant. At each appointment, the clinicians will conduct a brief health care screening, provide information about the vaccine, administer the vaccine and monitor the recipient for 15 minutes.
Vaccines will be administered from 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. daily from Sunday, April 11, 2021, to Tuesday, April 20, 2021. Recipients will be provided with a four-hour window when the clinical team will arrive.
