Background: The City of San José and Santa Clara County are jointly holding a vaccination event on Tuesday, May 4th to meet the needs of workers in East San José. Residents aged 16 and over are encouraged to come to the Rainbow Park children between 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. to get vaccinated. No appointments are required, and no ID, insurance, or proof of immigrant status is required to get vaccination. Accommodation is provided for those who need voice or access assistance.

Aiming to close the vaccine balance sheet gap, especially in the areas of East San José where residents are disproportionately affected by the pandemic, this clinic is bridging the technology and transportation challenges by eliminating appointment requirements and offering evening hours become. To further remove the technological barriers, staff and volunteers have searched the neighborhood to ensure community members are aware of the clinic. The Children of the Rainbow Park event is part of a series of immunization events aimed at removing barriers to the spread of the vaccine in affected communities.
