“When we reached a point where our demand was falling fairly considerably, we got the green light from the state to reach out to our partner communities,” Care Clinic CEO Helen Royal said. “A lot of workers work in Summit County but live in those communities, so we feel like it’s an extension of Summit to some extent.”
The clinic will be administering 300 vaccines Friday, all of which originally were allocated to Summit. Royal said all of the appointments for the drive were full as of Wednesday morning.
“(It’s) super exciting and shows the need in that community,” she said.
