NYC REMSCO is seeking paramedics, doctors, nurses and PAs to volunteer as vaccinators at a COVID vaccine Point Of Distribution (POD). This vaccination effort is in conjunction with NYC DOHMH and an integral part of Operation Warp Speed. The targeted recipients are NYC’s prehospital care providers.
NYC DOHMH is securing COVID 19 vaccine during Phase 1A for EMS providers ahead of others. Utilizing the NYC REMAC vaccination protocol, we are anticipating the Health Commissioner will authorize paramedics to join this public health effort to help keep our fellow EMS brothers and sisters safe.
This NYC EMS community specific POD event is scheduled for Sunday, December 27 and Monday, December 28, from 1000 to 1800 at sites in Brooklyn and Bronx. This is two weeks ahead of additional PODs DOHMH is setting up in NYC. DOHMH has set a goal to vaccinate 2,500 EMS providers during this event. We will need 15 volunteer vaccinators at each site for both days.
Unfortunately, at this time we have NO promise of compensation for our volunteer vaccinators.
