Starting April 11, eligible residents of Glendale and surrounding communities will be able to receive their COVID-19 vaccination through the Jewel City Vax Clinic, a mass-vaccination site at Glendale Community College with capacity to administer 10,000 vaccinations per week.
The City of Glendale, Adventist Health Glendale, Glendale Police Department, Glendale Fire Department and Glendale Community College have collaborated to operate the clinic on the college campus parking structure located off of Mountain St. The clinic will be held 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays through Sundays. The site is not drive-through. You can drive and park, arrive on foot, or come by public transportation or rideshare. Vaccinations will be provided by appointment only; no walk-ins. Anyone who lives or works in Los Angeles County and who is eligible for vaccination will be able to make an appointment by visiting www.myturn.ca.gov. As requirements for the vaccine evolve, the website can also help users check their eligibility.
“We are committed to bringing COVID-19 vaccines to the public as quickly and safely as possible,” said Glendale Mayor Paula Devine. “Through this collaboration with Adventist Health Glendale and Glendale Community College, we are making it more convenient for Glendale residents and others who work and live nearby to get vaccinated against this highly contagious virus.”
“Throughout this pandemic, so many community members have relied on us for safe, quality care and we’re thrilled to take this next big step, along with our partners, to reach the broader community and deliver on our mission to inspire health, wholeness and hope at a critical time,” said Alice Issai, president of Adventist Health Glendale. “The promise of these vaccines and the return to normal they represent is truly exciting.”
Dr. David Viar, President of Glendale Community College stated, “GCC’s convenient location and commitment to Glendale and the region makes us the natural choice for the vaccination location. Our best chance to beat this virus will come from working together as a community.”
