About 400 members of the surrounding St. Patrick’s Catholic Church community in District 9 were vaccinated on April 9, as part of the start of a mobile vaccination initiative spearheaded by Councilmember Curren Price in partnership with St. John’s Well Child and Family Center that aims to bring vaccines directly to South LA neighborhoods.
Volunteers, including Councilman Price’s Office, canvassed the surrounding area and made phone calls to nearby residents to inform them of the opportunity at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church. During the day-long event, neighbors were treated to snow cones to keep cool in the warm spring weather and received free boxes of face masks to take home, compliments of Team Price.
Stay tuned for dates, times and locations for upcoming local church events as part of the CD 9 grassroots effort. Residents can continue to call Councilman Price’s District Office to arrange an appointment for a vaccine and/or request a ride at (323) 846-2651.
