Truck stops: best places to vaccinate against COVID-19

Truck stops: best places to vaccinate against COVID-19

Different trucking organizations, such as Natso, the Tank Truck Carriers, the National Private Truck Council, St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund, the National Association of Small Trucking Companies, American Trucking Associations (ATA) and the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) consider truck stops the more appropriate locations for COVID-19 vaccination. This group of organizations addressed this concern through a letter to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) at the end of February, in which they stated that truck stops meet the appropriate criteria of places where commercial drivers can get vaccinated. From our side, as El Trailero Magazine (ETM) we emphasize the support for this initiative and we believe that it is an excellent idea. The truck stops are part of a commercial driver’s everyday life. They need to spend many days away from their own homes which makes it harder for them to go to designated vaccination places. Provide mobile localizations to vaccinate truck drivers will ensure that these essential workers get vaccination easily, since it will eliminate the bureaucracy that commercial drivers would need to deal with if they get the vaccine in a different city from their hometown. For example, at this moment, it is necessary to provide a proof of residence to be vaccinated. If the CDC follows this plan, commercial drivers will have different scenarios to get vaccinated, like for example getting the first dose on their hometown and receive the second dose in any truck stop they are, even if it is in another state. Getting immunized without obstacles will give a mental break to truckers who have been working incessantly and have constantly risked their lives so that the country avoids shortage of food or medical supplies, which also include the distribution of the Covid-19 vaccine. ...
