CENTRACARE
• Work with the following agencies to determine who and where people who are homebound are living, if they want to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, and the best strategy at the time to reach this population:
– County health and human services » County public health
– CentraCare home care
– CentraCare primary care providers
– CentraCare coordinated care clinic
• Utilize CentraCare’s mobile strike team or home care department to administer vaccines in patient’s home
• In some cases, and if appropriate, CentraCare or public health will arrange transportation for patient(s)
to get vaccinated at a clinic
• Continue to collaborate with leaders of racial and ethnic minority populations to develop vaccination strategies together.
– Set up a vaccination clinic at the Somali mosque or other community gathering spaces
• Provide on-site vaccination opportunities for large employers in manufacturing and food processing where many people of racial and ethnic minority are employed in Central MN
• Utilize CentraCare community health workers and public health to provide education and communicate factual and trusted information
• Ensure materials are available for vaccination clinics and that interpreters are available virtually and, when appropriate, on-site for vaccination clinics.
• Properly allocate vaccine to CentraCare hospitals and clinics that primarily serve rural communities.
• Utilize CentraCare’s mobile strike team to vaccinate hard-to-reach populations.
