How the Mobile Vaccine Clinic Started
Sussex County’s Mobile Library is being drafted to serve as a mobile medical unit by providing vaccinations to all those who want one and specifically for those who may have issues getting to a vaccination site.
Thanks to a partnership among two Sussex County agencies and Beebe Healthcare, the bookmobile has been going out, starting in mid-April, to hard-to-reach and underserved communities throughout Sussex to put more shots in the arms of Delawareans. It is the latest strategy in the ongoing effort to end the coronavirus pandemic that has gripped the globe for more than a year.
Sussex County Council, at its March 23 meeting, approved a memorandum of understanding between the County – specifically Emergency Medical Services and the Department of Libraries – and Beebe Healthcare to facilitate the first-of-its-kind venture, utilizing the County’s dormant bookmobile as a mobile stage to distribute vaccines in the community.
“This is an incredible, innovative approach that will make a real difference in the community and in the lives of so many of our people,” County Council President Michael H. Vincent said.
“Beebe Healthcare’s Population Health team is proud to partner with Sussex County EMS and others to bring a mobile vaccine clinic to communities in Sussex County,” said Dr. Bill Chasanov, Beebe Healthcare COVID-19 Response Medical Director. “This collaboration provide access to safe, effective, and life-saving vaccines to communities who may not be able to receive it through traditional approaches, accomplishing the goal of an equitable distribution.”
