The Berks County Intermediate Unit Main Office served as a Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccination site for school employees and contractors from Friday, March 12, through Saturday, March 20, 2021.
Intermediate units across Pennsylvania served as host sites for the vaccinations as part of a statewide-vaccination plan aimed at creating a safer environment for students, educators, and staff members that will allow school districts to continue to expand in-person learning opportunities for students.
“These vaccination clinics are a critical step for the education community,” Executive Director Dr. Jill Hackman said. “This is another example of how intermediate units can serve and support students, educators, and our communities in
this most extraordinary time.”
“Kudos to the BCIU for its leadership and partnerships with the various agencies,” Mrs. Bernice Crutchfield, BCIUEA President said. “Putting this clinic together is a massive undertaking, but this initiative is important in our effort to
provide a safer environment for students and staff.”
AMI Expeditionary Healthcare managed the clinic which provided 5,000 vaccinations over the nine-day period while
the Berks County Intermediate Unit provided logistical and operational support and volunteers.
Led by Dr. Brenda Robertson, many staff members contributed to the coordination of the clinic as well as spent countless hours to support this successful initiative. A special thank you is extended to Dr. Robertson for her efforts as the BCIU Vaccine Clinic Coordinator! Because of her leadership, the vaccine clinic was able to provide over 5,000 school employees and contractors with their vaccine through the very important vaccination process.
