Vaccine for mobile health clinics in Denver more than 10,000 since February

With the pandemic, it shifted to mobile COVID-19 testing sites, then vaccination clinics that are advertised through community partners. The mobile unit, which was designed to include exam rooms and areas for blood draws and doctor consults, was originally donated to the hospital through the Anschutz foundation to focus on taking primary care to neighborhoods. “The word is getting out through community centers, churches, and populations that already have a really nice center that they are focused on being a part of,” Holdershaw said. “The importance lies in making sure that we’re going to an area that these communities trust. We’re partnering with somebody who they know already and trust and by doing that it really helps break down the barriers of worry about the vaccine.”

“We really wanted to make sure that we went into the community, met people where they were, and took barriers away,” said Mackenzie Holdershaw, Nursing Program Manager for Denver Health’s Mobile Health Centers. >The videos above aired earlier this month and explains the state’s plans to launch mobile vaccination clinics.

The mobile health unit strategically sets up at locations scattered throughout the metro area four to five times a week, vaccinating between 200-350 people a day. The focus of the program has been to target neighborhoods that have been historically underserved, and so far, the hospital said 67% of patients who have been vaccinated through the mobile clinics have been people of color.

Denver Health will release more information on where future walk-up clinics will be held as soon as that test period is complete. RELATED: State launching mobile vaccine buses to reach medically underserved communities The first few weeks of the new operation will be meant as a pilot period.

Holdershaw said they will choose high-traffic areas, like shopping centers or business parks, and will vaccinate anyone in the area without appointments. Denver Health is expecting to get a third Mobile Health Unit this week. It will begin testing walk-up clinics with the one-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccine.
