Native American Health Center Battles the Surge

As of January 24, 2022 Native American Health Center’s (NAHC) patients were testing at a 35% positivity rate for COVID-19. To help combat the high cases of COVID-19 within the Fruitvale District and surrounding neighborhoods in Oakland, NAHC has been hosting a series of vaccination events for anyone 5 years of age or older, including a special vaccination event in December to honor the late Alameda County Supervisor, Wilma Chan, a tireless health care advocate for underserved communities during her decades of service to Alameda County.

In order to put both parents and children at ease, NAHC provided a safe, comfortable, and fun environment for their special vaccine event. This event came complete with a bouncy house, games, music, and toy giveaways as well as a special appearance by both Santa and The Grinch. During this event, 200 children received their second dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

As trusted leaders in the community, NAHC continues to protect and support their community during the pandemic with continued COVID-19 testing and vaccination events as well as continuing to provide all other health care services.
