connectRN works with Massachusetts Department of Health and others to provide access to COVID-19 vaccine for its community of per diem nurses and aides being missed in Phase 1
"Unfortunately, nurses and nursing aids who put themselves and their families at risk while caring for COVID-19 patients are being overlooked in receiving the vaccine simply because they do not have official employee status at a medical facility," said Kalyn Weber (https://www.linkedin.com/
connectRN has also successfully worked with the Richmond County Health Department and Baltimore City, and are in-process with other state and city health departments to give its community of clinicians access to the vaccine. connectRN is rapidly expanding in the U.S. with member nurses currently working in 10 states.

To ensure their nurses and aides had access to vaccine options, connectRN facilitated communication between partner facilities hosting clinics and connectRN clinicians interested in receiving the vaccine.
"As an agency nurse, it was difficult to get the COVID-19 vaccination until I received an email from connectRN about vaccine clinics through their facility partners," said Deborah Robinson, a licensed practical nurse in Maryland. "I'm so grateful for connectRN. They provided the avenue for my COVID vaccination."
