This past Thursday, 2/16, was our monthly Truckers' Vaccination clinic. After holding a truckers' health fair last year, we realized that many people who were screened at the fair couldn't make our clinics. Since then, the Hep B project has been holding monthly clinics at OT 411. These clinics are mainly intended for vaccinating people who cannot make our weekly Wednesday clinic. We vaccinated 5 people this week, and we look forward to more successful clinics in the future months.
Two big updates since the last post!
1/19 - Truckers' Vaccination Clinic. We are currently holding monthly on-site vaccination clinics for truckers whose work times overlap with our regular clinic hours. 3 people were successfully vaccinated, and we hope to do the same next Thursday, 2/16, when we go back!
1/21 - RICE GIVEAWAY EVENT. We outreached to nearly 200 people waiting in line for free rice. It was exciting to have such a big group so close to our Saturday clinic location, and the event itself was a new experience for the volunteers.
