Offerings, Including COVID-19 Vaccines

911OccMed awarded Maricopa County contract to help businesses gain easy access to vaccinate
(April 19, 2021 – Phoenix, Ariz.) 911OccMed,formerly 911 Drug Testing, is changing its name effective May 1, to
reflect the variety of occupational medical services offered. The organization is also proud to help Valley
companiesinoculate employees against COVID-19 and get back to business, safely. Starting this month, the
state’s leading workplace wellness center is on track to vaccinate between 200-800 people a day throughout
Maricopa County.
911OccMed receive the contract with the County in an effort to speed up mass immunizations against the
COVID-19 virus. The five-year contract will help 911OccMed provide vaccinesto targeted populationsidentified
by Maricopa County including employees in the restaurant industry, front-line employees and refugees.
“Receiving this contract from the County aligns perfectly with our company’smission and helps employers in the
Valley not only protect their staff but hopefully get back to business levels they experienced before the global
pandemic,” said Sarah Hope, owner of 911OccMed clinics.
As a first-generation Cuban business owner, Hope is focused on reaching communities where it is challenging to
get a vaccine, such as a farmworkers, migrants and those who may not have access to a computer or can’t take
time off work to get vaccinated. This was her ultimate motivation for purchasing a new mobile medical clinic.
911OccMed is the only business in Arizona that has an entire 360-experience for onboarding employees in the
workplace. From criminal background checksto drug testing,fingerprinting and immunizations, 911OccMed is
an all-in-one solution for pre-employment needs and vetting workers. It’smobile clinic bring services to
organizations like employees in the field, schools that do random drug testing for bus drivers (required by
Federallaw) and contractors who require a drug-free workplace.
“With COVID numbers in the Valley remaining moderate and vaccinations continuing to rise, many businesses
are looking forward to not only an increase in business but a burst in hiring,” added Hope. “Most businesses rely
on an outdated pre-employment systemwith one company for criminal background checks, another for drug
testing, and still another for fingerprinting. This inefficient process means companies are often stuck waiting for
results from multiple agencies, paying each of them separately and in effect slowing down the hiring process.
We are able to streamline and fast-track that process.”
Throughoutthe last severalmonths, 911OccMed has been a key partner in Phoenix to help get employees back
to work safely. They have administered convenient, low-cost COVID-19 testing options including rapid nasal
antigen tests with results in 15 minutes, antibody rapid blood tests with results in 15 minutes as well as airlineapproved PCR nasal swab tests with results in 30 minutes.
“We were already providing COVID testing to the community, and those same customers and patients
repeatedly asked if we were going to get access to the vaccine,” said Hope. “Our clinics are strategically located
across the Valley to reach a large contingency of workers looking for the COVID vaccine. We are proud to be able
to offer these services and have the backing of the County to help ensure employee s are safe when reporting for
