TVHC Increases COVID Vaccine Access in Schools
August 25, 2021
As students began making their way back into the classroom this month, TVHC is increasing access to COVID vaccines to parents and students.
On Thursday, August 19th, TVHC hosted a pop-up COVID vaccine clinic at the San Lorenzo Unified School District office with extended hours from 2:30 pm to 7:00 pm, making it easier for community members to get vaccinated after work.
This event is part of a much larger strategy of getting COVID vaccination clinics in schools. Since June, TVHC has been hosting pop-up clinics at Cesar Chavez Middle School, James Logan High School, and Chabot College, helping to increase access to the vaccine at a time when it is most needed.
Back in 2020, classrooms went virtual, campuses were closed, and students missed out on activities with their fellow classmates, including school sports. With the COVID vaccines, this year, most schools have fully re-opened with in-person learning helping students get a bit of normalcy back into their lives and TVHC is doing its part to help keep students safe with its on campus COVID vaccination clinics.
Back in July, the TVHC vaccination clinic at Chabot College was able to fully vaccinate the school’s football team just in time to start the 2020- 2021 season. TVHC has been hosting the COVID vaccination clinic at Chabot College since June of this year and will continue to host the clinic every week on Mondays and Tuesdays, where students can get vaccinated in between classes for free.
TVHC has two other on campus pop-up vaccination clinics planned for September 15th at James Logan High School and September 22nd at Ltliong-Vera Cruz Middle School in Union City. Both of these clinics will be open to the public.
