Elmhurst and Villa Park Fire Departments Team Up to Administer COVID-19 Vaccine to Homebound Residents

The Elmhurst and Villa Park Fire Departments, along with Metro Paramedic Services, are teaming up to share resources and personnel to deliver the COVID-19 vaccination to homebound residents. The DuPage County Health Department (DCHD), Region 8 Emergency Medical Service System (EMS), and local Fire Departments are expanding their current efforts in order to vaccinate homebound individuals throughout DuPage County. Several paramedics from each department were required to participate in special training and complete an exam with a score of 100% in order to administer the vaccination in the field. This will help ensure that any homebound individual who cannot safely leave their residence is able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

The DuPage County Health Department is maintaining and coordinating a list of homebound individuals who have registered for COVID-19 vaccine as well as providing the necessary vaccine and supplies to perform this critical work. Any individuals, age 16 years and older, who are homebound or have difficulty getting to a vaccination clinic are eligible for the program and may register at www.dupagehealth.org/covid19vaccineregistration  or call (630) 682-7400 for assistance.
