Asian Health Services’ Multilingual Mass Vaccination Site
On February 24, our member community health center, Asian Health Services (AHS) held a half-day, multilingual, COVID-19 vaccination event. They provided nearly 1,000 vaccinations to patients who speak 10 different languages. They were able to do this on top of the regular vaccine clinic that they run daily which provides over 200 appointments per day.
“It was truly amazing that AHS gave nearly 1,000 shots to patients who may not otherwise know how to access other resources. Yet, the hallmark of AHS is how we did it with cultural and linguistic competence and with so much patience and respect for those patients we serve. This is how #AHSBeatsCOVID!”
– Dr. Mychi Nguyen, Chief Medical Officer, Asian Health Services
