More free flu shot clinics for South LA
MLKCH mobile health van at three locations in vulnerable community
What: Residents of South LA can now get free flu shots at three locations in South Los Angeles, a community at high risk of a “twin-demic” of COVID-19 and the flu.
Every Thursday through spring 2021 the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital “Healthy Moves” mobile health van, in partnership with Health Net employees, will provide free flu shots and screenings in the parking lot at the corner of 120th Street and Wilmington Avenue adjacent to the MLK Community Health building.
Address: 12021 N. Wilmington Ave, Suite 1000, Los Angeles, CA 90059
Time: 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Every Friday through spring 2021 the hospital’s “Healthy Moves” van will provide free flu shots at the Boys and Girls Club of Watts.
Address: 1339 E 120th St, Los Angeles, CA 90059
Time: 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
On four Tuesdays from Nov. 10 through Jan. 12 the “Healthy Moves” van will provide free flu shots at the Cedar Grove Community Office.
Address: 2131 East Century Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90002
Dates: Nov. 10, Dec. 1, Dec. 15, Jan. 12.
Time: 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Why: Flu can complicate symptoms of COVID-19. South LA already has a high burden of disease which makes residents more vulnerable to COVID-19. A flu shot will help reduce the risk of severe illness in the event of a COVID infection.
