Milestone accomplished in support of state operations at AshBritt-IEM Health operated vaccination sites in Virginia and Florida.
The Joint Venture of AshBritt, Inc. and IEM Health have successfully vaccinated over 500,000 individuals through ongoing mass vaccination programs to support state, local, tribal and territorial (SLTT) governments in their efforts against the COVID-19 pandemic. This milestone is made possible through AshBritt/IEM Health’s’ partnership with the Virginia Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) and the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM) to augment vaccination and public health response efforts in these states.
AshBritt CEO Brittany Perkins Castillo said, “Today, I am proud to announce that our efforts have made it possible to vaccinate 500,000 Americans. This milestone is evidence of our strong public-private partnership and our joint efforts to help combat the pandemic. Our team is committed to saving lives and ensuring accessibility to vaccines in communities that have been hard hit by the pandemic.”
IEM CEO Madhu Beriwal noted, “This is a major milestone for our team as we work to vaccinate as many individuals as possible. Working with the State of Florida and the Commonwealth of Virginia, we strive to focus on equity and inclusion to serve our most vulnerable communities. We are honored to be a part of this important effort and help turn the tide against the pandemic.”
AshBritt/IEM Health’s operations account for the complexity, scale, and speed required to quickly and efficiently distribute immunization resources. Vaccination sites are currently being operated at eight locations in the Commonwealth of Virginia and seven locations in the State of Florida. Three vaccines are offered throughout the vaccination sites (Johnson & Johnson, Moderna and Pfizer), with Pfizer offered to residents aged 16 and older. Both Virginia and Florida sites are currently accepting walk-ins. All staff have received necessary training to meet access and functional needs at each location, and to maximize vaccination efforts, each site designated a community liaison to best engage the local communities served.
With 500,000 vaccinations complete, AshBritt/IEM Health will continue our vaccine operations to help state and local governments meet their vaccination goals.
