Collection Sites Continues to Engage Government on Vaccine Distribution Opportunity
The Collection Sites team continues to engage multiple levels of government across the United States with the goal of using the Collection Sites network of pop-up labs as vaccine distribution centres. While there are still regulatory and logistical challenges associated with this opportunity, the Collection Sites team believes the benefits of faster and more convenient vaccine distribution has the potential to help the United States reduce the spread of COVID-19.
