During the week of April 5, Team Price was out in full force at Vermont Square Park continuing to provide neighbors with the opportunity to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, including Nazareth Mitrou-Long, NBA player for the Indiana Pacers, and special guest KJLH host Dominique DiPrima who was on hand to support this important cause.
Since beginning vaccination efforts in District 9, between the site at USC and the mobile clinics across CD 9 parks, nearly 60,000 doses have been distributed in Councilman Curren Price’s District as part of his ongoing efforts to address health disparities and increase access to the vaccine in South LA.
The mobile units at local parks, which began in February, have been rotating weekly across CD 9 recreation centers to help bring the life-saving shot directly into local neighborhoods. Over the past year, there have been nearly 70,000 positive coronavirus cases and more than 1,000 deaths in District 9.
As Councilman Price continues his boots to the ground vaccination efforts, it is now more important than ever to take the opportunity to get your shot. The next opportunity is coming April 13-17 at South Park Recreation Center. See the flyers below for more detailed information.
Be sure to make your appointment, or if you need to request a ride, by calling Councilman Price’s District Office at (323) 846-2651.
