In the next week, UT Physicians will hold two community vaccination events aimed at reaching the under-resourced areas of our community. The separate events will be held at our community-based clinics, UT Physicians Multispecialty – Victory and UT Physicians Multispecialty – Jensen.
“Getting vaccinated is not just about preventing disease in oneself, but also protecting the community where you live and work,” said Vanita Agrawal, MD, medical director for UT Physicians Multispecialty – Jensen and assistant professor in the Department of Internal Medicine at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth. “Our upcoming COVID-19 vaccination events will be very critical in preventing community spread and will also allow some of the more vulnerable parts of our population an opportunity to receive the vaccine.”
The schedule for the vaccination efforts are as follows:
- UT Physicians Multispecialty – Victory
- First dose on Wednesday, April 14
- Second dose on Wednesday, May 5
- UT Physicians Multispecialty – Jensen
- First dose on Friday, April 16
- Second dose on Friday, May 7
