The National Association of State EMS Officials (NASEMSO) released survey results from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and American Samoa on the eligibility of EMS personnel as vaccinators. The survey outlines findings of EMS eligibility based on state guidelines. EMS World outlines planning considerations for EMS agencies in vaccine delivery since their roles may vary depending on the state, county or city.
If your EMS agency is involved in vaccine delivery, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Office of EMS, in coordination with national, federal, state and local officials, developed a list of Just in Time Training Resources for Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) SARS-CoV-2 Vaccinators .
