Public Health COVID-19 Mobile Vaccine Program Scaling Down After March
Source: Santa Barbara County Public Health Department
The Santa Barbara County Public Health Department will scale down its COVID-19 Mobile Vaccine Program at the end of March. The Mobile Vaccine Program has been highly successful in reaching community members through convenient, local venues for vaccine clinics for over a year. Through this program nearly 30,000 community members were able to receive a first, second, or booster dose in their own community. The Mobile Vaccine Program will continue working in a limited, but directed way with local community partners through at least June 2022.
“The success of the Mobile Vaccine Program is a testament to the power of collaboration with community partners. Ensuring vaccine access is not a barrier for our residents has been at the heart of this program,” shared County Public Health Director, Van Do-Reynoso. “With over 360 vaccine clinics hosted in nearly every region of the county, including New Cuyama, the Mobile Vaccine Team has gone above and beyond to provide opportunities for community members to receive the vital protection of a COVID-19 vaccine.”
COVID-19 vaccines remain widely available through local health care providers and pharmacies. Staying up to date on your COVID-19 vaccinations is the best step to protect yourself and your family from severe illness. Although case rates continue to trend downward, it is critical to be prepared for what may come next. If you’re eligible, take the time to schedule your first, second, or booster dose today.
