VIP StarNetwork, a leading provider of mobile and onsite health services, has received a contract from the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) to provide free COVID-19 testing and vaccines to any public and private venues that request it—including schools, community centers, churches, film sets, and theaters—all supported by New York State.
This initiative is meant to support President Biden’s recently announced plan to protect Americans against the Omicron and Delta variants of COVID-19 this winter.
The expansion of COVID-19 testing and vaccinations across New York State will complement the White House’s aim to increase public access to those services, especially in lower-income areas that are hit hardest by the virus. This includes establishing a series of pop-up testing and vaccination sites across the state during the holiday season and beyond.
The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approved VIP StarNetwork as a Mass Vaccination Provider in February 2021, enabling the company to deploy vaccine clinics in the geographic areas it serves. VIP StarNetwork has established COVID-19 testing and vaccination sites in underserved communities all over New York State, and it is a key player in the state’s #VaxtoSchool initiative.
VIP StarNetwork provides a variety of direct healthcare and safety services, including COVID-19 testing and vaccinations, to governments, community centers, film sets, sporting events, concerts, schools, and more.
The company’s cutting-edge technology enables easy online access to health records, along with a patient-care model that matches patients to the right physicians and healthcare providers across the continuum of care.
