COVID-19
EDUCATE & VACCINATE

COVID-19 pandemic has made life harder for vulnerable individuals and families. With the grant from Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA), our goals are to vaccinate and educate our local community.

EVENTS

On July 30th, BPSOS, with our partners Fairfax County Health Department and ECNV, has conducted a COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Eden Center. In July, we vaccinated 45 people, including 11 children.

 

The clinic was hosted at Eden Center, which is among the biggest Vietnamese commercial hubs on the east coast. We managed to vaccinate 24 people total. At the clinic, BPSOS program coordinators provided language interpretation and assisted with registration and flow control.

We also had 4 radio talkshows last month, where we updated more than 3000 listeners on current COVID-19 news. Our program coordinators also conducted targeted outreaching via multiple channels and attended many webinars to learn and share COVID-19 updates to the community. There were several volunteers who heard of us and wanted to join us to help with the clinics as well as other programs. 

In August, BPSOS will host multiple vaccine clinics:

  1. August 14th, 9AM - 2PM, at Giac Hoang Temple, 5401 16th St NW, Washington, DC 20011
