These Q&A sessions DREDF is holding have been great-- I recommend folks check them out.
And thanks to DREDF for having me there a couple weeks ago-- dynamic discussion
Updates, COVID and vaccination resources, plain language handouts and videos on our website for people with disabilities and their families on the SCDD website: https://scdd.ca.gov/
Any agencies / CBOs that serve people with disabilities and their family members as a part of their larger community can reach out to me about PPE-- we can help you
New system, but not MyTurn?
Several people I know tried the phone number and they could not get through
Did staff send out the slides to panelists?
Hi Kevin, the phone number is highly popular, we have about 30 people manning the phones m-f. since staff help people make appts, call times are on the longer side
Fire depts.!! Should have been used early
Thank you for that advocacy Dr. Tri Do
Brian, reducing barriers to the minimum eligible age also allows us to reach people younger than 50 which includes many of our essential workers and Latinx families.
While it is really great to see so many vaccination efforts underway, it is mystifying that private practice physicians are still having such a difficult time being allocated vaccine. Patients generally a high level of trust in their personal physician and our members are eager to help vaccinate their patients and others. I understand with Blue Shield in the mix there is little the County can do, but I do hope we eventually get to a place soon where we leverage the entire delivery system for vaccinations.
While we wait for vaccine supply levels to increase, we must prioritize zip codes and increase opportunities for people who may otherwise not have access to vaccnie.
Thank you for that
How will the geographic areas be defined for the Coalitions?
That's a wonderful win
Would Alameda County be willing to allocate more of the Coliseum vaccines for AC residents?
Where can these RFPs be found?
Great idea, and we would be happy to participate (in planning, helping advertise, or front of house support)
Very true, Pastor Arlene
Aaron Ortiz, La Familia
Great points Wendy
The Ashland Free Medical Clinic in San Lorenzo offers primary care services to uninsured folks on Saturdays. A pop-up near there might be helpful.
@Pastor Arlene I was just on an email today about following up with Our Lady of the Rosary to explore if they could be a potential site. Also we can try to link you w/some of our partners in the Vietnamese Community anchored in Oakland who probably have more reach
I'm glad that Pastor Arlene has raised this issue. Many CBOs have cash flow constraints and they struggle with County contracts that don't pay invoices in a timely way.
I'll email you again this evening so we can further strategize
Sheela, if you share your phone number with me I will call you tomorrow
