ANNAPOLIS — Luminis Health has launched a mobile vaccination clinic to reach those residing in subsidized senior residential communities in Anne Arundel and Prince George’s counties.
On Friday, the mobile clinic made its first stop to Bowman Place, a senior living community in Annapolis by Homes for America.
“Many of these residents have transportation and technology issues,” said Charlotte Wallace, community health nurse for Luminis Health. “With our mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinic, Luminis Health aims to eliminate these obstacles and provide a much-needed shot of hope to our neighbors. Seniors are the most vulnerable to this virus, and vaccinating them as quickly as possible brings us closer to ending this pandemic.”
35 seniors received their first dose of the vaccine during the mobile clinic.
“These residents were incredibly brave,” added Wallace. “Many of them were scared of needles and vaccinations, but we provided on-the-spot education and talked them through the process to provide encouragement.”
The mobile vaccination clinic is part of Luminis Health’s community vaccination plan to reach those who are unable to get to other vaccine clinics.
