The introduction of the COVID-19 vaccine brought a sigh of relief to most Americans, signaling a gradual shift to normalcy. This return to normal, however, will not come easy. The vaccine alone can not solve the problem—it will take widespread vaccinations to put an end to the global pandemic. Since the onset of the pandemic, Healthcare Workforce Logistics (HWL) has doubled down on what it does best — mobilizing healthcare professionals where they’re needed most and providing creative solutions like mobile vaccination sites to the nation’s most difficult to reach communities.
Achieving State & Local Public Health Goals
While the demand for vaccinations has declined, county officials are left scrambling. How do state and local governments promote more vaccinations in order to reach public health goals? This is where HWL comes in, providing a full-service approach towards marketing, education, and vaccination delivery activities to encourage shots in the arm. From providing on-site staff to mobile vaccine setup to developing marketing deliverables, our team is the leading provider of end-to-end strategic vaccination services. Our knowledgeable staff goes the extra mile. This was exemplified in our partnership with Weld County, CO officials to promote vaccination services, including bilingual press releases, flyers, and radio spots in order to connect with Spanish-speaking populations.
“As vaccine eligibility changed, vaccine access to diverse communities needed to quickly change as well. HWL’s pop-up vaccination solutions made it possible to cater to eligible age groups and community demographics. These solutions have and will continue to assist Weld County in achieving its vaccination goals.”
-- Robert Middlebrooks, CEO and Managing Consultant at RPM Consulting
Customizable End-to-End Solution
HWL currently contracts with state, regional, and local governments and private organizations to deliver comprehensive community vaccination services.
We offer a complete & customizable solution including:
- Clinical and non-clinical staffing
- Project management services
- Vaccine storage and management
- PPE and material supplies
- Scheduling and vaccine administration technology
- State and CDC Reporting
- Physician clinical oversight
- Vaccine promotion
The HWL mobile vaccination program can be quickly deployed and services range from 1-day pop-up facilities to more sophisticated and complex mobile vaccination units.
Type of vaccination units & support we deploy:
Pop-up Vaccination Centers - Vaccination sites that can quickly be set up anywhere for a temporary amount of time in a variety of settings. 1-2 days
MVU (Mobile Vaccination Units) - Fully-equipped vans that bring vaccination services closer to communities whose citizens are unable to make it to vaccination sites in their area.
HWL Vaccination Tents - Larger-scale vaccination sites using mobile tents which can be set up in a variety of locations that provide additional space to accommodate more vaccinations. 1-2 weeks
Vaccine Site Staff Support - This is a staffing service for entities that already have a vaccination infrastructure in place, but are in need of qualified clinical staff to administer vaccine doses.
Strategic Venue Selection
Our team of experts assists with creative and strategic vaccination venue selection and coordination. For example, the vaccination staff we deploy can provide Pfizer vaccines to venues where adolescents would typically congregate, like recreation centers. In addition, the ability to provide the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine gives us the flexibility to attend popular events without the need to schedule a second dose.
These types of vaccination sites provide more accessibility and are ideal for just about any high-foot trafficked area.
- Recreation Centers
- Community Centers
Fully-equipped vans are also the ideal solution to bring vaccination services closer to communities whose homebound or less mobile citizens are unable to make it to vaccination sites in their area. This option is more personal and approachable to those who are apprehensive about getting vaccinated. From small to large-scale temporary vaccination sites, HWL can accommodate.

The HWL Difference
Our data-driven approach looks deep into current reporting to determine which communities have the greatest challenges and to understand ethnic and cultural differences in each community. We overcome those challenges through partnerships with local community leaders and develop incentive programs that encourage individuals to get vaccinated. Our success is measured by our ability to achieve specific vaccination targets and is validated through daily state reporting in GRITS.
