Mercer Island Mobile Vaccine Teams
Last week, the Mercer Island Fire Department EMT’s started administering the COVID-19 vaccine to eligible Island residents.
MIFD Mobile Vaccine Teams are assisting mobility-challenged residents or those who have experienced difficulties in securing appointments. This program was made possible with approval by the WA Dept of Health, and supplies and specialized training from Bellevue Fire Department's Paramedics.
Emergency Management staff have reached out to local long-term care facilities and adult family homes so that they are aware of the availability of this service.
If you or a loved one (a resident over the age of 65) needs assistance scheduling vaccine appointment, YFS Geriatric Specialist, Marjorie Carlson may be able to help. She can be reached at (206) 275-7752 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
