About the Program

CATEGORY: Health
YEAR: 2022
The San Bernardino County Mobile Clinics Collaborative significantly improved the accessibility and delivery of COVID-19 vaccination services. The Collaborative leverages partnerships between the County and predominant health care providers to streamline and maximize vaccination efforts across the largest county in the United States. The Collaborative allows mass vaccination providers and community-based organizations (CBOs) to come together to share plans of upcoming vaccination events and to identify cities, zip codes, and populations of focus. It allows for strategic planning to ensure equitable coverage of services, targeted clinics to reach diverse communities that needed it most, and strengthens partnerships with community leaders who serve as trusted messengers when promoting vaccination events to their own unique population groups. Since the launch of this initiative, over 980 COVID-19 vaccination and COVID-19 testing events have been executed helping to increase vaccination rates and protect the residents of San Bernardino County against COVID-19. 788 of those events can be viewed via an interactive map that was developed as a result of this initiative. Beyond COVID-19, the partnerships cultivated in this Collaborative will serve as tools to address future public health emergencies and together, we can help improve the health of the community of San Bernardino County.
