File Description: 

COVID-19 vaccines for homebound patients residing in Durham County are now available through a partnership between the Durham County Community Paramedics and the Durham County Health Department. This initiative serves to identify patients who are unable to safely access the COVID-19 vaccine outside of their home due to health or mobility, and provide the vaccine to patients in their home. Referrals for Duke patients can be e-mailed to Elissa Nickolopoulos, MSW, LCSW-A at elissa.rumer@duke.edu.  All referrals must contain patient's name, MRN, preferred phone number, allergies, preferred phone number and alternative contacts (if applicable). Documentation of patient's verbal consent for referral to Community Paramedics must be documented in patient's chart prior to making the referral.
