Inside Out Youth Services to host COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Friday afternoon
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – Inside Out Youth Services will be hosting an immunization clinic in partnership with Governor Polis’ Vaccines for All plan, reaching Coloradans in the Hillside neighborhood.
While Inside Out services are generally geared towards the LGBTQIA2 + community, the clinic will be open to everyone.
Inside Out was selected as the Vaccine Equity Clinic site as part of Governor Polis’ efforts to ensure that everyone in Colorado has access to the vaccine, no matter who they are or where they live.
“Since we began distributing vaccines to communities in our state, we have made a concerted effort to do so in a fair manner, save as many lives as possible, and end the immediate public health crisis as quickly as possible. Said Governor Jared Polis. . “With each vaccine administered, we take one more step towards returning to life as we knew it. I want to thank the community organizations in our state for their partnership to ensure that everyone who wants a vaccine can get one. ”
“Our goal is to remove barriers to accessing the COVID-19 vaccine,” says Nic Vargas (they / them), Inside Out’s vaccine awareness coordinator. “While Inside Out wants to make sure that all LGBTQIA2 people who want to get the vaccine can get it, we also want to welcome the rest of the community. Hillside Community Center is a warm neighborhood place that will help clinic participants feel at ease, while Inside Out helps them feel assertive.
The clinic is scheduled for October 29 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Hillside Community Center, 925 S. Institute St.
