What: Friday first and second dose vaccine clinic and supportive services event open to residents age 18 and older, scheduled to meet the needs of downtown residents, persons with disabilities and the unhoused.

With the goal to close the vaccine equity gap, particularly for unhoused residents, this clinic aims to provide opportunities for the downtown San José community to get vaccinated and have access to basic needs services such as food, assistance with Stimulus Check sign ups, and direct referral to housing for the unhoused. The County of Santa Clara Supportive Housing Team is partnering with AACI and the City of San José to make housing referrals onsite and will have two drivers available to transport clients directly to a shelter (depending on capacity). To further address technology barriers, staff and volunteers canvassed the neighborhood and encampments to make sure community members are aware of the clinic.
When: Friday, May 14, 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Where:San José City Hall Rotunda
200 East Santa Clara Street, San José, CA 95113
