NEW YORK, May 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Zeel, a leading technology platform providing health and wellness services to the home and office, announces that it has expanded its partnership with the City of New York to provide for in-home vaccinations to thousands of individuals across the city.
The in-home vaccination program is free to qualified individuals and their caregivers – and has now expanded to include anyone over the age of 75 and all disabled individuals, and under-vaccinated buildings. The initiative is supported entirely through the New York City Vaccine Command Center.
"We are thrilled to provide this critical service and honored to be working for our great city," said Samer Hamadeh, CEO and co-founder, Zeel. "Vaccinating our city's most vulnerable has inspired our entire team. We feel fortunate to be involved and will continue to dispatch the hard-working nurses on the Zeel platform to as many locations as possible. Our goal is to continue until every homebound, disabled, and elderly individual over the age of 75 in the city is fully vaccinated and then to return to them if a booster becomes necessary in the fall."
Zeel dispatches up to 20 teams of three -- a licensed nurse, a driver and an administrator -- to each senior's home and is capable of vaccinating up to 200 residents per day. The company expects to vaccinate up to 8,000 individuals between now and late summer. Zeel is one of several providers — which also include the Visiting Nurse Service of New York, Doral Health & Wellness and SeniorCare Emergency Medical Services — selected to work with the Vaccine Command Center for the homebound program.
Raymond Estrada, a former Captain in the FDNY and nurse on the Zeel platform, said he has been personally moved by the outpouring of gratitude, "When we arrive at their door, they feel like there's hope, a real light at the end of this terrible tunnel."
Eligible residents are encouraged to sign up for the program at www.zeel.com/vaccine or by calling 646-586-3593.
