Verde Valley Caregivers Coalition in partnership with Spectrum Healthcare began a pilot for in-home vaccinations for homebound older adults and adults with disabilities. 

Dr. Bruce Peek, who serves on VVCC’s Board of Directors, coordinated the pilot and mobile team, which vaccinated 12 older adults in their homes on March 1. “This was a big blessing,” said Cary Vaitkus, whose homebound mother, Eva, received her vaccination. “At 93, it’s hard for my mother to walk and then stand in line. We were so ecstatic to receive a phone call to participate.”

Update: VVCC is now vaccinating five days per week, with 15 vaccinations per day across the Verde Valley. Spectrum Healthcare is providing the vaccine, officially registering the individuals receiving the vaccine, and providing the supplies.
