During a pandemic, the last thing we want to do is bring a large group of people together indoors where they can easily transmit the virus. This was a way to keep people separated while still ensuring they can receive their vaccine. And because the shelter was heated and protected against the elements, it provided our personnel with a more comfortable workspace
Orangeburg, NY (Vocus) March 16, 2010
Emergency medical products and services provider DHS Technologies LLC recently revealed its newest shelter system – the Reeves Mobile Vaccination System.
The Reeves Mobile Vaccination System provides medical and public health personnel with 442 square feet of usable space from which to administer seasonal vaccinations or vaccinations during a pandemic or other widespread outbreak. The system features two shelter end caps that can easily be added or removed, allowing personnel to create either a walk-up vaccination clinic with plentiful interior workspace or a drive-thru clinic from which health officials can deliver vaccines while still protected from the elements.
“The system’s flexible design allows personnel to create the workspace that is most effective for them and that will allow them to treat the greatest number of patients within a short period of time,” explains Reeves representative Mark Vidovic.
Constructed from military-tested shelter technology, the Vaccination System can also be set up or taken down by minimal personnel in minutes and withstands extreme weather and temperatures.
Though new to the market, the Reeves Mobile Vaccination System has already been used by health departments across the country. Last November, in response to the H1N1 outbreak, the Madison County Health Department set up a drive-thru vaccination clinic to distribute nearly 2,000 vaccinations.
“During a pandemic, the last thing we want to do is bring a large group of people together indoors where they can easily transmit the virus. This was a way to keep people separated while still ensuring they can receive their vaccine. And because the shelter was heated and protected against the elements, it provided our personnel with a more comfortable workspace,” says Madison County Public Health Coordinator Stephanie Grimes.
