County Commissioner Pct. 3 Iliana Holguin, along with the Center for Employment Training (CET) and University Medical Center (UMC) have partnered to bring the mobile clinic to the local trade school, to vaccinating all community members over 16 years of age at the campus.
CET, as well as The Penrose Neighborhood Association and the Holmsley Trail Neighborhood Association are supporting outreach efforts to get as many vaccines to vulnerable populations in the county.
The UMC Mobile Clinic will register individuals at the CET school on 294 Candelaria Street on May 7th. The UMC Mobile Clinic will return on Friday, May 14th, and UMC staff will administer the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
A second round shot will be scheduled following the first. Vaccinations are available to community members 16 years and older. Photo ID’s are required and minors under 18 will need to have a parent or legal guardian present.
CET officials added that they are “a proud partner in playing a part to keep our community safe and bringing us a step closer to ending the pandemic.”
