Thank you to ochealth, Latino Health Access, Families Together of Orange County and our volunteers for operating two mobile PODs in the #OCFourthDistrict today at Magnolia High School and Savanna High School. We vaccinated over 850 clients. And our seniors clients continue to express their gratitude towards the County of Orange, California and all of our community partners for running efficient and targeted #vaccination sites.
Ada Tseng from the Los Angeles Times even visited our Magnolia High School POD to interview Dr. Chau and me and to learn about our POD operations and vaccine equity efforts. We’re pleased that we got to show Ada firsthand how #OrangeCounty continues to make great strides in vaccinating one of our County’s hardest-hit communities in #Anaheim.
It was an honor to recognize Daniel, Jennifer, Julia, and Emily Monson at the #Fullerton city council meeting with a Kindness Award for actively carrying on the legacy of their late daughter and sister, Katherine “Katie” Monson, who passed away from brain cancer.
Katie graduated from Fullerton High School in 2016 and was attending UCLA when she was diagnosed with cancer. Although her affliction ended her collegiate life, it set Katie on a new path to found the The KM Legacy Foundation.
We’ve been so inspired by the beautiful #streetart on display all around #OrangeCounty today.
