In 2009, Central District Health Department (CDHD) was faced with the responsibility of administering tens of thousands of doses of vaccine to the community in response to the H1N1 influenza pandemic. CDHD employed the services of MAV for a five month period. During this time, MAV consistently provided professional staff to protect our resources (i.e., people and materials) and manage large crowds of people, including children and people with disabilities. As a result of their support, CDHD was able to successfully vaccinate over 90,000 individuals without a single compromise to the mission. Without reliable and top-notch support from MAV, CDHD would have not been able to successfully respond to this public health emergency. Their involvement directly resulted in a decrease in influenza-related illnesses and deaths in our community.
