UCI Health partners with Anaheim high schools to get 16-and-olders vaccinated

UCI Health Family Health Center is partnering with the Anaheim Union High School District to offer vaccinations to older students and their families, now that the state allows everyone 16 and older to be inoculated. Executive Director Dr. Jose Mayorga said working with the school district was a natural extension of serving the community where UCI has had a clinic since 1977. Parts of Anaheim where students and their families live “really had been hit hard by the pandemic, and for me personally as a doctor, as part of the community, being Latino myself, these are the patients that I went into medicine to care for,” he said.
