#VaccinateME - Maine Community Action Partnership: #GiveitaSHAHT!

From Maine Community Action Partnership (MeCAP) 

June 10, 2021 

Confidentiality and convenience are two of the barriers for many Mainers who are not yet vaccinated against Covid-19. Research and surveys show that the next wave of for Covid-19 vaccination success depends on the ability for patients to get vaccinated at their trusted physician’s office and in private. Additionally, for working people and families, the time of day is a hurdle. 

In an effort to get as many vaccines out as possible in doctor’s offices, the Maine CDC has changed the minimum requirements for vaccine quantity. Additionally, for convenience, some medical offices are offering a consistent drop-in time later in the afternoon (2pm-6pm) to meet their patients where they are and get shots in arms. 

If you are interested in banding together with other physicians in your area to host a vaccination clinic, please contact Maureen Leary mleary@mecap.org for information and support. 

The message to send to all patients continues to be #GiveitaSHAHT!
