The Community-University Health Care Center recently partnered with the local non-profit organization WellShare International to provide COVID vaccinations for Minneapolis community members.

"As part of CUHCC's community-driven health care, this mobile vaccine clinic was an opportunity to engage with Hispanic communities, providing care to those with the highest needs while also limiting barriers to vaccination. This combined response by CUHCC and OACA's Mobile Health Initiative at the vaccine event allowed lots of time for outreach and vaccine education within the communities," said Opy Adesida, CUHCC's mobile health director.

Additional vaccination clinics will be held throughout June.
