LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Chair Hilda L. Solis, Supervisor to the First District, today announced that in partnership with the Los Angeles Department of Public Health, three new mobile vaccine clinics would be deployed in the coming week to vaccinate residents in West Covina.
“Throughout this pandemic, I have been committed to meeting the needs of my residents, ensuring an equitable response and surging resources to those communities that need it most. Tragically, residents and businesses across the First District have been hit especially hard by this pandemic. That’s why at my direction, the Department of Public Health will be deploying three mobile clinics to the City of West Covina,” shared Chair Solis. “This concerted effort will help us reach individuals across eligible groups who are at higher risk for severe effects of COVID infection, are homebound, or are unable to travel far from home, and will provide hope to our residents that we are on the path to putting this pandemic behind us.”
“We appreciate the efforts of the County and Department of Public Health in providing newly available resources that West Covina residents need to overcome this pandemic,” shared West Covina Councilmember, Brian Tabatabai. “With these mobile clinics, and those throughout the San Gabriel Valley, West Covina residents, in particular, senior residents can rest assured that they will receive a vaccine and our Valley is one step closer to normalcy.”
Mobile vaccination clinics will be deployed to various locations, including: Heritage Park Senior Apartments, Olive Tree Terrace, Vintage Gardens Senior Apartments, and the West Covina Senior Center.
Further details on these vaccination sites including registration logistics are forthcoming.
