TALENT, Ore-- Today the Phoenix-Talent School District partnered with Rogue Community Health to provide a free vaccination clinic for the Hispanic community 18 years and older. The event allowed both pre-registered people and walk-ins to receive the first dose of the Moderna covid-19 vaccine.
“Our goal is to provide vaccine access in a place that is familiar and comfortable for our students’ families, and the entire community in Phoenix and Talent,” said Jake Patoski, the Phoenix-Talent Schools Communications Specialist.
Patowski also said that Talent Elementary School was the perfect place to host the event because it's not only a place that the community is familiar with but feels comfortable enough to come.
The Phoenix-Talent School District and Rogue Community Health will continue sending out newsletters to remind people to come back for their second dose in 28 days. The second vaccination event will only be for those that received their first dose today.
