Orange County, North Carolina Selects Everbridge To Help Manage Vaccine Distribution
Everbridge Powering COVID-19 Vaccine Scheduling System for Entire County, Ensuring Rapid Registration and Communication as Vaccine Supply Ramps Up
BURLINGTON, Mass., April 27, 2021 — Everbridge, Inc. (NASDAQ: EVBG), the global leader in critical event management (CEM), today announced that Orange County, North Carolina selected the company’s Vaccine Distribution platform to better coordinate and administer the COVID-19 vaccine. The new system, powered by Everbridge, allows residents to choose how to be notified when an appointment becomes available – either via text, automated phone call or email – and will help the county manage the process to ensure that all vaccines are distributed efficiently.
The County – home to 150,000 people and the city of Chapel Hill, the University of North Carolina and the towns of Carrboro and Hillsborough – recently opened vaccine eligibility to everyone 16 and over. State data shows ‘more than 50,000 residents had been fully vaccinated, representing 33.9%. The numbers are among the highest in the state for any county.’
“Everbridge is yet another tool in our toolbox aimed at ensuring the vaccination process is as efficient, effective, and equitable as possible,” said Orange County Emergency Services Director Kirby Saunders. “We are proud of everyone who has worked tirelessly to get this operational while also continuing to manage the ongoing vaccination process.”
In addition to Orange County, recent deployments of Everbridge to power vaccine distribution also include Muscogee (Creek) Nation in Oklahoma, Indian River County and Sarasota County in Florida, St Clair County in Michigan, the entire state of West Virginia, and other public and private sector organizations.
“We are proud to partner with the leadership of cities, counties, and entire states to help expedite vaccine distribution,” said Erin Edwards, Senior Director of State and Local Government at Everbridge. “From the onset of this pandemic, public safety leaders like those in Orange County have worked tirelessly to support ongoing COVID-19 relief efforts.”
In January 2021, Everbridge launched COVID-19 Shield™: Vaccine Distribution, an extension to its CEM platform supporting the full spectrum of organizations that develop, manufacture, transport, distribute, regulate, and administer the coronavirus vaccine. The offering also provides governments with a single, unified platform to expedite vaccine coordination, communication and distribution for residents. With Everbridge’s COVID-19 Shield™: Vaccine Distribution, customers gain capabilities to: coordinate the number of residents or employees who have been vaccinated, manage population density and access to office buildings based on vaccination status, and receive timely alerts when someone report signs of illness so they can quickly respond to safeguard the community.
The very latest updates on the coronavirus pandemic and best practices for efficient distribution of vaccines will be addressed at Everbridge’s Spring 2021 COVID-19: Road to Recovery (R2R) virtual leadership summit taking place May 26-27. The two-day symposium will feature keynote addresses from 42nd President of the United States Bill Clinton and Chairman & Editor-In-Chief of Forbes Media Steve Forbes, and will include presentations from world leaders, healthcare experts and C-suite executives from cross-industry and geography.
