“There is a misconception that Paramedics are a means to transport people to Emergency Rooms. Paramedics play a larger role in the health care system and before excluding them from the first phase of vaccine roll-out, it would be prudent to consider the impacts of not having them vaccinated with their fellow HCW’s.”
“… Paramedics travel between multiple health departments, hospitals, LTC facilities, and residences in a single day.”
APA President, Dusty Myshrall
This letter is a long one, designed to inform gov’t about the critical role Paramedics play in the pandemic. APA has spoken with the Health Minister’s office and they are reviewing this letter. It’s worth the read!
