UConn Health made it easier for Connecticut residents to get vaccinated this spring by partnering with FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency) to get mobile vaccine units into nine communities identified as most in need of such services.
UConn medicine, dental medicine, pharmacy, nursing, and public health sciences students, as well as medical and dental residents and physicians, volunteered to staff the clinics. Here, fourth year postgrad Angad Deengares and professor and primary care physician Steven Angus help vaccinate residents in Norwalk, Connecticut.
