Stanford Health Care to help operate COVID-19 clinic in East Palo Alto

in Community

A new partnership involving Stanford Health Care will enable continued COVID-19 vaccine administrations at Cesar Chavez Ravenswood Middle School in East Palo Alto.

The clinic will run Saturday afternoons at the school at 2450 Ralmar Ave.

The partnership includes San Mateo County, the city of East Palo Alto and the middle school and aims to keep vaccinations available in an area hard-hit by COVID-19.

The clinic will be operated by Stanford Health Care, the city and the school while the County will continue helping with vaccine allocation and outreach, including door-to-door canvassing. The clinic offers both walk up and drive through availability.

“We’re grateful for the opportunity to partner with San Mateo County and community leaders in East Palo Alto to provide better access to vaccination,” said Dr. Niraj Sehgal, chief medical officer at Stanford Health Care. “Access to vaccination is a critical tool to address the national inequities in vaccination we’re continuing to observe.”

For those who want to schedule their appointment rather than walk-up to the site, visit the state of California’s MyTurn system.
