New days & locations have been added to the Vaccine Unit schedule

 

Los Angeles, Calif., April 22, 2021Community Hospital of Huntington Park (CHHP), East Los Angeles Doctors Hospital (ELADH) are proud to have partnered with Angeles Community Health Center (ACHC) and plan to extend their vaccination clinic on April 27th, May 11th, and May 25th.

CHHP and ELADH, in collaboration with the ACHC, a non-profit community health center, introduced a Mobile COVID-19 Vaccination Unit to help bridge the transportation gap when it comes to getting care while staying close to home. With this partnership, these two hospitals are striving to reduce the logistical hurdles that people in disadvantaged groups such as the homeless, seniors, low-income and others often face when trying to get to a vaccination site. The first day of this partnership was on Monday, April 12 at ELADH; 100 vaccines were distributed from the Vaccine Unit.

Pipeline Health will be hosting additional vaccine clinics in partnership with ACHC on:

  • April 27 at CHHP: 2623 E. Slauson Ave., Huntington Park, CA 90255
  • May 11 at ELADH: 4060 Whittier Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90023
  • May 25 at CHHP: 2623 E. Slauson Ave., Huntington Park, CA 90255

To Schedule an appointment please call (866) 981-3002, Monday - Friday from 8:30AM to 5PM. We are pleased to announce that all individuals 16 and older are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccination at CHHP and ELADH. The Moderna vaccine will be provided at our hospitals.

“Our goal is to bring the vaccine to our community and make it easier for individuals and families to get it. We want everyone to know that the vaccine is safe and that it is available to everyone regardless of insurance coverage or immigration status,” said Victor Carrasco, FACHE, CEO of East Los Angeles Doctors Hospital.
