The second Connecticut FEMA Mobile Vaccination Unit has ended operations. The unit went into service May 7th, following the eleven city tour of the first FEMA mobile unit, and ended operations yesterday. Among the cities where FEMA vaccinated people against COVID-19 was Danbury.
Connecticut National Guard members and municipal partners provided non-critical staffing.
The unit administered more than 4,000 second doses of the Pfizer vaccine and coordinated outreach to high-risk and vulnerable residents. FEMA Acting Region 1 Administrator and Federal Coordinating Officer Paul Ford says the joint effort allowed residents who could not reach a Community Vaccination Center get vaccinated.
