We’re proud to announce that Zeel has partnered with the New York City Vaccine Command Center to vaccinate thousands of homebound individuals across the city. This lifesaving program is free to qualified homebound individuals and their caregivers as a city-supported service.
Since the program kicked off in early April, Zeel has contacted thousands of homebound New Yorkers and vaccinated as many as 200 people per day, thanks to the incredible dedication of our network of nurses and other healthcare providers.

“Vaccinating our city’s most vulnerable has inspired our entire team,” said Samer Hamadeh, Zeel’s CEO and co-founder. “Our goal is to continue until every homebound individual in the city is fully vaccinated and then to return to them if a booster becomes necessary in the fall.”
Dr. Robert Peters, Zeel’s Chief Medical Officer praised the commitment of the healthcare workers in the Zeel provider network. “The nurses have been working around the clock. Our front-line workers were the heroes during the pandemic, and for Zeel, they are the heroes of this vaccination program.” Zeel expects to vaccinate up to 8,000 individuals between now and late summer.
