Assistant Fire Chief Justin Pizon said he can begin to see the “light at the end of the tunnel” as he and his fellow firefighters and EMTs prepare to launch mobile COVID-19 vaccination clinics for eligible residents in Exeter.

Starting March 4, members of the Exeter Fire Department tapped by the Seacoast Public Health Network will begin vaccinating residents and staff at the Exeter Housing Authority. He said over the next several weeks, firefighters will fan out to 10 communities for people age 55-plus.

Pizon said firefighters will also make several individual house calls over the next several weeks to reach elderly residents who are unable to leave their home to go to the National Guard’s vaccination site in the Exeter High School football stadium parking lot.

“We’re providing a clinic onsite to get those individuals vaccinated,” Pizon said. “We’ve been lucky that a large majority of our staff has assisted the National Guard at the fixed vaccination site. All of the logistics are being coordinated through the Seacoast Public Health Network.”
