Whitman Fire Department paramedics will be giving COVID-19 vaccinations to off-duty firefighters. Media members will be able to record and use footage of the firefighters receiving their vaccines, but due to the nature of a vaccination as a medical procedure, media members are respectfully asked not to air the vaccinations live.
Director Muse has organized this vaccination effort through Brockton Hospital for first responders in the greater Whitman area. The Whitman Fire Department will be rolling out vaccination events for all first responders in the community in the coming weeks, including to Whitman Police officers and EMT personnel.
