Mobile Vaccine Trailer
In effort to exhaust all measures to combat the COVID-19 virus and protect the residents of Orange County, the Florida Department of Health in Orange County utilized Federal CARES Act dollars to purchase a 24-foot long mobile trailer to ensure they had versatile tools to reach and vaccinate neighborhoods and those who are homebound.
This trailer has been outfitted with vaccine storage units, supplies and Department of Health network equipment. A total of five staff members, made up of nurses, EMTs and clerks operate in the mobile vaccination trailer and have been going into underserved communities since the second week of March 2021. This mission administers the Johnson & Johnson one dose vaccine and can vaccinate over 300 Central Florida residents a day. The goal of this mobile unit is to reach and vaccinate homebound and hard to reach residents in underserved communities in Orange County.
