NHTSA Released Just-In-Time Training for EMS to Perform COVID-19 Vaccinations

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 

  • An EMS Vaccine Administration Program Manual 

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.
