A communal Latino vaccination clinic in Aurora is scheduled for Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Sierra De Aurora Banquets, 2121 W. New York St.
The event is sponsored by a coalition of Latino churches, organizations, community advocates and elected officials in Aurora to ensure that Latino communities in Kane, DuPage, Kendall and Will counties have equal access to the COVID-19 vaccine and have an equal awareness of it.
The group’s LATINvaX Aurora initiative, in partnership with VNA Health Care, hosts clinics for qualified Latino residents of CDC Groups 1A, 1B, and 1B-plus. Those authorized to register must:
• Be 65 years of age or older.
• Do you work in healthcare, as a first responder, or in various major industries.
• You have a disability or medical condition including diabetes, obesity, lung disease, smoking, heart and kidney disease, and cancer.
To sign up for the clinic, call (872) 267-2414 or visit latinvaxaurora.com.
