What can I expect at a mobile vaccination clinic
The state is offering mobile pop-up vaccination clinics that take place in a community-based setting like a community center, auditorium, or tent. They usually are set up short-term, for a day or evening for example, and may be offered on a regular schedule, like one day a week.
- Mobile clinics are offered in addition to typical vaccination sites, like hospitals/medical provider offices, or pharmacy-based clinics.
- Pop-up or mobile vaccination services are delivered by qualified clinical staff, including nurses, paramedics, and emergency medical technicians.
- Pop-up or mobile vaccination services include registration for vaccine appointments, sharing information about the vaccine, giving the vaccine, observation by clinical staff after getting the vaccine, and scheduling of follow-up appointments for second doses (if needed).
A vaccination provider will come to the organization's host-property to vaccinate individuals. Organizations are encouraged to survey individuals and confirm participation prior to requesting a clinic.
