PAWTUCKET- The City of Pawtucket and Mayor Grebien thank the State of Rhode Island, Governor Dan McKee, and the Rhode Island Department of Health for launching an initiative to vaccinate Pawtucket residents in their homes. Med Tech Ambulance Service, based in Pawtucket, has partnered with the State to vaccinate residents as part of a larger state-based initiative.
Roughly 50 Pawtucket residents have already been vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine through this initiative and close to 150 residents have been reached out to with the hopes of helping more and more residents, who cannot leave their homes for various reasons, in the coming weeks.
“We cannot thank the State, Department of Health, and Med Tech Ambulance Service enough for helping us vaccinate our residents who can’t get to a clinic,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “Our goal is to get every resident of our city vaccinated and, through this initiative, we will able to be one step closer to achieving that goal.”
“Med Tech Ambulance Service is proud to be a part of helping local residents that cannot leave their homes to get access to this life saving vaccine. We want to thank the Rhode Island Department of Health, Governor McKee, and Mayor Grebien for all of their efforts to make these important vaccines available and also for giving us the opportunity to be involved,” said Gary Reis, President and CEO of Med Tech Ambulance Service.
Med Tech Ambulance Service has been serving Rhode Island for Twenty-Five Years and we will be an integral part of delivering the Covid vaccine to the most vulnerable population in Rhode Island. Gary and Adam Reis, born and raised in Rhode Island, are very proud to be a part of this process. “We want to thank everyone in Rhode Island that is working hard every day to make a difference during this difficult situation,” continued Gary Reis.
“We have been able to vaccinate many Pawtucket residents through the municipal clinics and our many partners in the HDC initiative,” said Pawtucket Health and Equity Leader Elizabeth Moreira. “This program helps us get to the residents who can’t come to any of those other clinics and fills an important need in our community. We encourage all residents who cannot leave their homes due to health constraints to register for the program.”
Residents can still sign up to be contacted about the “Home-Bound Initiative” and can register through the survey conducted by the State and Rhode Island Department of Health. The form is offered in three languages:
