Sacramento County Public Health launched new mobile vaccination trailers that will host pop-up clinics throughout the County in the coming weeks, specifically targeting underserved populations by bringing vaccines directly into the neighborhoods - which is the current focus of COVID-19 vaccination efforts.
The mobile vaccination trailers, built by TPD Trailers in Sacramento, will be deployed to support mobile vaccination operations and are designed to support a variety of missions including vaccine deployment, medical countermeasure point-of-dispensing, medical sheltering support, and bulk-hauling of emergency equipment, as well as being capable of functioning as an autonomous mobile command posts in the event of disaster.
The National Guard will support at select clinics to help administer the vaccines. Patients will have a choice between the Pfizer vaccine (approved for patients 12+), which is a two dose series, or the Johnson & Johnson vaccine (approved for 18+), which is a single dose.
Sacramento County Public Health is currently coordinating several upcoming community sites. Starting this week, the mobile vaccination trailers will begin by visiting every supervisorial district in the county. Dates and locations of where the clinics are located will be posted on the Sacramento County website
Appointments will be available through MyTurn, but the clinics will also accept walk-ups. Vaccines are free and patients do not have to have an I.D. to receive a vaccine.
