As reported by WBFO NPR, According to the agencies that coordinated vaccination for people with disabilities in Western New York and New York City, partnerships and agency-guided clinics were instrumental to vaccination in the areas they serve.
CEO Marco Damiani said this led to 90% of the people who live with AHRC being vaccinated.
“Being a large organization in the state, we were quickly able to partner with a very large long-term care pharmacy. And they provided us vaccination clinics all over New York City. And we ended up vaccinating 1,000 people within our first week in that program,” Damiani said.
