As more communities are looking at boosting their COVID-19 vaccination campaigns, they are starting to utilize EMS personnel to assist with vaccines. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Office of EMS – in coordination with national organizations, federal agencies and state and local officials – developed a one-page list of Just in Time Training Resources for EMT SARS-CoV-2 Vaccinators.
The list of resources includes:
A training video on COVID-19 intramuscular vaccine administration
An intramuscular injection skill checklist
SARS-Cov-2 Vaccine Training for EMTs
IAFC members are encouraged to consult these resources if they are asked to participate in COVID-19 vaccination campaigns.
Ken LaSala is the IAFC’s Director of Government Relations & Policy.
