Community efforts to bring COVID vaccines to OC’s hardest hit neighborhoods are paying off

UC Irvine epidemiologist and public health expert, [assistant professor] Daniel Parker said, “The work between the county Health Care Agency and the cities and Latino Health Access, the [Orange County Coalition of Community Health Centers], the school districts has been super important.” Parker’s worked with all of the various entities and said it might be the most local collaboration to address health issues ever. “This is better cooperation with these groups than what they’ve seen, maybe ever. So it’s positive,” he said.
