COVID-19 Testing and Vaccination

We are a leader on the frontlines of COVID-19 around the world.


The AMI Expeditionary Healthcare Vaccination and Testing programs are adaptable, flexible, scalable and can be quickly implemented across a large geographic area. We are ready to vaccinate and test anywhere in the world in low resource settings and conflict zones.

We take lessons learned from our Ebola crisis response in Liberia in 2014 and 2015 and apply them in the fight against COVID-19. As the single holder of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) contract to provide Disaster Medical Teams (DMATs), AMI started deploying clinicians in February to Washington and California. Since then, AMI has deployed thousands of clinicians, administrative and logistical personnel to support COVID-19 responses across the U.S. and throughout the world. No other company of our size has made such an impact in responding to this pandemic.

In addition to the United States and Australia, AMI is positioned all over West Africa , East Africa, North Africa and South Africa. We have strategic AMI Clinics in Sierra Leone, Liberia, South Sudan, Libya and manage the UN Hospital in Somalia. AMI has vaccinated more than 3,000 UN Staff in Mogadishu and more then 10,000 UN Peacekeeping Troops all over Somalia. We collaborate with the local MOH, and CDC Africa to ensure vaccination are delivered.
