ME DHHS Updates Pop-Up Clinic Eligibility & Application

Maine DHHS remains committed to making COVID19 vaccination as accessible and easy as possible. With as few as 10 confirmed patients, any community organization (e.g. school, employer, religious organization, community group, etc.) can now organize a vaccine “pop-up clinic” to bring vaccinations to their community.

 

Maine DHHS remains committed to making COVID19 vaccination as accessible and easy as possible. With as few as 10 confirmed patients, any community organization (e.g. school, employer, religious organization, community group, etc.) can now organize a vaccine “pop-up clinic” to bring vaccinations to their community. 

Organizations that can identify at least 10 friends, colleagues, clients, or community members looking to get vaccinated and are ready to host a pop-up clinic are asked to please complete this brief online application:

Once a completed application is received, staff from the Maine CDC Maine Immunization Program will connect approved applicants with an approved COVID-19 Vaccination Provider. The applicant or their designee will be asked to work with the assigned Vaccine Provider to finalize logistics. DHHS can assist by providing guidance on clinic preparations.
