Hanover Fire Department Paramedics Bring Vaccinations to Hanover’s Most Vulnerable

The Town of Hanover’s Mobile Integrated Health Program successfully administered 20 COVID-19 vaccine doses to the community’s most vulnerable homebound residents today.

This was the result of a collaboration among the Hanover Fire Department, Hanover Public Health Office, Council on Aging, and community volunteers. The process to ensure our elderly residents and the most vulnerable in Town have access to the vaccine has been ongoing for weeks. Staff from the Council on Aging along with Hanover’s CERT volunteers called every resident over the age of 70. The goal was to provide information, assist with registration, and determine what may help residents access a local or regional vaccination clinic. Firefighter/Paramedics from the Hanover Fire Department’s Mobile Integrated Health Team visited each resident to deliver the vaccine.

Hanover Visiting Nurses will be providing follow-up phone support to each of the residents who received an in-home vaccination today.
