Today, we celebrate the administration of the one-millionth COVID-19 vaccine dose at a Curative-operated site nationwide. Through a combination of Curative mobile vans, drive-thrus, kiosks, and community partnerships locations, Curative is working to make getting vaccinated easier for those that have been the most severely impacted by COVID-19. Demonstrating our commitment to health equity, we have prioritized COVID-19 vaccine deployment to communities that traditionally have limited healthcare access.
Once the FDA authorized COVID-19 vaccines for distribution, the Curative vaccine team worked quickly and tirelessly to deliver vaccines to communities around the country. Curative utilized our proven competencies in scaling testing logistics to establish 513 unique vaccine distribution sites across five states, equipped with cold-chain capabilities, mobile options, and accommodations for technology limitations. To run these facilities, we have locally to operate these sites, giving community members the unique experience of helping to end the pandemic in their neighborhoods. Curative continues to champion and support our frontline workers, who make our progress possible.
“I am extremely in awe of the contribution we made in eradicating COVID-19. Being on the frontlines fighting this invisible enemy has made me realize how valuable Curative has become in the last year and how frontline workers truly are the heartbeat of this global pandemic. Having started with 20 nurses in December of 2020 to now about 1000, distributing 1 million doses has just been the most rewarding experience.”
– Lorelie Yujuico, National Clinical Director of Nursing
We are committed to finding innovative ways to ensure marginalized and hard-to-reach communities receive the healthcare they need in a way that is convenient and comfortable for them. To accomplish this, Curative has created partnerships with community organizations to lean on local expertise in guiding our progress.
“We are proud to be a trusted leader of COVID-19 testing and vaccine distribution. Through our strong partnerships with community-based organizations, Curative has been able to prioritize COVID-19 vaccine deployment for vulnerable populations who need it most, in an effort to slow the virus’ spread. We could not have reached this milestone without the commitment of our partners and employees who are dedicated to ending the pandemic. We are truly working to build a healthier tomorrow, together.”
-Fred Turner, Curative CEO
Looking to the future, we will continue to meet healthcare needs by working alongside the communities we serve.
