What:

It is the first city-sponsored vaccine event to be held in a public library in San José. The clinic will deliver the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and is open to residents aged 18 and over.

With the aim of closing the vaccine balance sheet gap, especially in the areas of San José where residents are hardest hit by the pandemic, this clinic aims to offer residents the opportunity to get vaccinated through weekend hours. To further remove the technological barriers, staff and volunteers have searched the neighborhood to ensure community members are aware of the clinic.
