Brewster Ambulance Service, which serves as the Town of Plymouth’s transport ambulance service, will be administering COVID-19 vaccinations to members of Plymouth’s northern fire district.
Media members will be able to record and use footage of the firefighters receiving their vaccines, but due to the nature of a vaccination as a medical procedure, media members are respectfully asked not to air the vaccinations live.
“We are extremely pleased to have received our shipment of COVID-19 vaccinations from the state as they will go a long way in ensuring the safety of our first responders during the ongoing pandemic,” Chief Bradley said. “I would like to thank the Plymouth Firefighters Local 1768, the Professional Firefighters of Massachusetts and Director of Plymouth Public Health Karen Keane for their cooperation during this time. Without their cooperation, our vaccination effort wouldn’t have been possible.”
The Plymouth Fire Department will be rolling out vaccination events for all first responders in the community in the coming weeks, including to Plymouth Police officers and dispatch personnel.
Note: All media members planning on attending this event are asked to adhere to social distancing and mask-wearing guidelines at all times while at the fire station during the event.
