4 Arabic, 4 Bengali, 4 Mandarin, 4 Spanish, and 4 ASL interpreters walk through the gates of Ford Field stadium in downtown Detroit at 7:30 am every morning. What do they all have in common? They’re working with Bromberg & Associates to ensure fair and equitable language access at Michigan’s mass vaccination facility, where about 5,000 people a day are vaccinated against COVID-19.
In the Front Lines of Language Access!
Since early March, the Bromberg team has been working tirelessly translating signs and documents, scheduling interpreters, and collaborating with the State of Michigan on how best to serve our state’s limited-English proficiency and Deaf and Hard of Hearing population during this process. Now, over the next 4 weeks, Michigan residents will be able to continue to receive the vaccine free of charge at Ford Field as the state works to eradicate the spread of COVID-19.Bromberg & Associates is proud to say that 7 days a week, from 7:30am to 8:30pm, interpreters are available to anyone who may need language assistance in navigating the vaccination process. While commonly spoken languages, like ASL, Spanish, Mandarin, Arabic and Bengali, are available with the help of professional interpreters at the location, over 200 languages can be accessed in seconds via telephone and video. We are honored to be supporting the State of Michigan on the frontlines of this historic undertaking, doing our part to guarantee that everyone has access to the vaccine regardless of language or communication needs.
