Walgreens and CVS to Provide Onsite Immunizations Clinics for Seniors and Other Vulnerable Groups
Los Angeles, Calif. (January 13, 2021) — EAH Housing, an affordable housing nonprofit organization, today announced that its senior housing residents have begun to receive the COVID-19 vaccination.
Residents at Reflections at Barbara Ann, a 64-unit senior affordable housing apartment community in North Hollywood received their first doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, as part of an onsite immunization clinic provided by Walgreens.
“As the number of COVID-19 cases and deaths is surging, it is imperative that our seniors and other vulnerable residents receive COVID-19 vaccinations,” said Laura Hall, president and chief executive officer at EAH Housing. “We applaud Walgreens and CVS for providing us with this critical service onsite, making it safer and more convenient for our residents.”
EAH Housing is working in conjunction with Walgreens and CVS to provide onsite COVID-19 immunizations for thousands of seniors and vulnerable residents throughout California and Hawaii.
Reflections on Barbara Ann is owned by Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA) and is a part of a larger portfolio of affordable housing apartment communities managed by EAH Housing.
“COVID-19 has shown us how critical having a home is to maintaining good health,” said Tina Booth, director of asset management at Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles (HACLA). “We appreciate the efforts of EAH Housing and Walgreens to ensure that our seniors and most vulnerable residents have timely access to the vaccine.”
The onsite immunizations are in conjunction with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and its national retail pharmacy program to distribute and administer the COVID-19 vaccinations.
