This vaccination clinicwas scheduled on a Sunday to meet the needs of workers in the Summerside and Stonegate East & West neighborhoods and the surrounding community, and is the first city-sponsored vaccination event to be held at a public library in San José. The clinic will administer the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and is open to residents 18 years of age and older.
In an effort to address the vaccine equity gap, particularly in areas of San José where residents have been disproportionately affected most by the pandemic, this clinic aims to provide residents with the opportunity to be vaccinate by offering weekend hours. To further remove technological barriers, staff and volunteers surveyed the neighborhood to make sure community members were aware of the clinic’s existence.
|When:||Sunday, May 16, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.|
Tully Community Branch Library
The Tully Community Branch Library event is part of a series of vaccine events aimed at overcoming barriers to vaccine distribution in affected communities. No appointment, ID, insurance or proof of immigration status is required to receive the vaccination. Arrangements will be made for those who need language assistance or access.
