. In Maine, a looming vaccine deadline for EMTs is stressing small-town ambulance crews « JO LEE MAGAZINE

NPR – On a recent morning, Jerrad Dinsmore and Kevin LeCaptain of Waldoboro EMS drove their ambulance to a secluded house near the ocean, to measure the clotting levels of a woman in her nineties. They told the woman, bundled under blankets to keep warm, that they’ll contact her doctor with the result. “Is there anything else we can do?” Dinsmore asked. “No,” she said, “I’m all set.” This wellness check, which took about 10 minutes, is one of the duties Dinsmore and LeCaptain perform in addition to the emergency calls they respond to as staffers with Waldoboro’s Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
