Housing, Health & Human Services (H3) Update
COVID 19 vaccines have arrived in Kitsap County and the City of Poulsbo is working with the County Public Health District, Department of Emergency Management, Poulsbo Fire, local pharmacies and healthcare providers to be part of the vaccination effort. We’ll be holding pop up community clinics throughout the month, and focusing our efforts on seniors who find it difficult to travel to vaccination locations. For those who can travel, opportunities for vaccination appointments are slowly and steadily increasing. Stay calm and click on: the Public Health COVID information page (https://kitsappublichealth.org/CommunityHealth/CoronaVirus_Vaccine.php) and the Peninsula Community Health Services home pages are good sources of information (https://www.pchsweb.org/).
Hooray for volunteers! A call for local Medical Reserve Corps volunteers went out in January and we were inundated with offers—so many that we’ve (temporarily) closed our sign up list. Grateful, as always, for the community spirit of Poulsbo residents and their willingness to assist.
The Poulsbo Fire CARES Unit is up and running and responding to behavioral health needs throughout North Kitsap County. This is a City partnership with Poulsbo Fire and the Olympic Peninsula Community Clinic to pair a firefighter/EMT with a mental health professional to provide a new kind of response to non-emergency 911 calls. Say hello to Renee and Dave if you see them around town. More information about the program here: https://www.poulsbofirecares.com/
Please contact Kim Hendrickson at the City's Department of Housing, Health and Human Services with any questions: email@example.com.
