Whittier Union High School District Hosts Weekly Vaccination Clinics in Effort to Combat COVID-19

As part of the District’s commitment to providing healthy and safe learning environments, Whittier Union High School District is encouraging students, teachers, staff and community members to get vaccinated against COVID-19 – an effort supported by its recently launched weekly clinics. 
 
The free weekly clinics, hosted at the District office in partnership with Paramount Family Pharmacy under the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH), were established following a successful series of vaccination clinics hosted on WUHSD campuses in late August. Since the launch of the weekly clinics in late September, more than 100 vaccines have been administered to the community.
 
“We want to support community vaccinations,” said Dr. Monica Oviedo, Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services. “We thought if we could make it easy by having a clinic in a centrally located place that people are familiar with and could simply walk into, it might help encourage people to get vaccinated.”
 
Oviedo said the incredible staff and nurses operating the vaccine clinics have been an invaluable resource in the District’s efforts to guard against COVID-19. 
 
The District will continue to administer vaccines from 5 to 7 p.m. every Wednesday at the Whittier Union High School District Board Room, located at 9401 Painter Ave., Whittier. Participants may register at MyTurn.ca.gov, although walk-ins are welcome. Questions or other inquiries may be emailed to covid19vaccine@wuhsd.org.
 
Additionally, the District is also hosting a vaccine clinic for its staff who wish to receive their booster shots on Friday, Oct. 8 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the same location. More than 100 participants have registered for the clinic so far.
 
“We are proud of the efforts put forth by our District community into stopping the spread of COVID-19,” Superintendent Martin Plourde said. “We hope to continue providing free vaccinations for the community so that our students and their families remain safe and healthy.”
