San Jose Children’s Discovery Museum Announces Upcoming Family Immunization Clinics – CBS San Francisco

SAN JOSE (BCN) — The San Jose Children’s Discovery Museum and the Santa Clara County Public Health Department will host another vaccination clinic on Sunday for eligible children and their families.

The clinic follows a similar vaccination effort at the museum on January 2. The museum will also hold a clinic on February 13, with at least two more planned this spring.

Residents ages 5 and older will be eligible for their first vaccinations. Those aged 12 and over will also be eligible for a booster shot if they received either their second dose of vaccine at least five months ago or their single dose of Johnson & Johnson vaccine at least two months ago. .

Each family that has a child or adult vaccinated at the clinic will receive free museum passes for up to eight people. Museum passes will be valid until May 31.

As with the Jan. 2 clinic, the museum and the county are targeting participants in Medi-Cal, the state’s Medicaid program, who are less likely to be vaccinated than the county’s general population.

“We are proud to play a role in immunization equity by reaching out to underserved and non-English speaking communities,” said Marilee Jennings, executive director of the museum.

Vaccines will be available walk-in on a first-come, first-served basis during the clinic, which will run from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
