Central Vermont Home Health & Hospice (CVHHH) began administering the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine the week of February 8 in accordance with State of Vermont and Vermont Department of Health guidelines. CVHHH is prioritizing homebound Central Vermonters aged 65 and older and will expand vaccine distribution based on eligibility criteria, including age band groupings, in accordance with the State of Vermont.
Starting the week of March 8, we will administer vaccines to individuals in Phase 5A and will continue to vaccinate Central Vermonters in alignment with State of Vermont guidance.
CVHHH’s vaccine team, led by Ashley Lafirira, RN, and Jodi Demell, LPN, is distributing the vaccine to individuals in the community currently active on CVHHH service who are homebound and unable to go in person to one of the state-run public clinics. We have partnered with local EMS crews, including Waterbury Ambulance, to reach all eligible homebound Central Vermonters, including those not receiving services from us. This is a critically important development in Vermont’s fight to eradicate COVID-19, and CVHHH is a proud partner in this effort.
If you are currently receiving services from CVHHH and are eligible to receive the vaccine, we will call you to schedule an appointment. If you have questions about eligibility for yourself or a family member or friend, please call 223-1878 and ask to speak with Emily McKenna.
