Thursday’s vaccination event will also host Feeding Northeast Florida’s Mobile Food Pantry.
More dates and locations will be announced. People who live in other shelters, like The Salvation Army and Trinity Rescue Mission, will be receiving vaccines soon from Sulzbacher’s two-year project to get the vaccine to underserved communities.
“We are so excited to be able to provide this service to those in NE FL who just need a little more help getting vaccinated,” Cindy Funkhouser, president and CEO of Sulzbacher, said in a statement. “This is so important for our community.”
In March, Sulzbacher became a recipient of part of the $2.9 million American Rescue Plan. The program is part of the American Rescue Plan, federal pandemic relief funding for community health centers to serve at-risk populations. Sulzbacher used its share of the money to start its vaccine program with its Healthmobile.
Sulzbacher is the largest provider of homeless assistance services in Northeast Florida and one of 47 federally qualified health centers in the state.
