SAN JOSE, Calif. (KRON) — The homeless population in San Jose will have the opportunity to get the COVID-19 vaccine during a pop-up event at the city hall on Friday.
Volunteers are helping run this vaccination event, which begins at 8 a.m.
Across California, people 16 and older are eligible for the vaccine – so this will help some of the younger people experiencing homelessness.
The most difficult aspect of getting everyone vaccinated is people being able to get appointments – requirements include having a phone or computer to book – with limited time slots available daily.
Pop-up vaccination sites are helping reach the most vulnerable and the ones who don’t have access to appointment resources.
The vaccinations will continue until 4 p.m.
