On Friday, April 30, Fourth Street Clinic staff spent the morning hosting a vaccine clinic at Pamela’s Place, administering COVID-19 vaccines to both tenants and the community. By bringing the vaccine directly into the community via their Mobile Health Care unit, Fourth Street is able to break through barriers that prevent individuals from getting vaccinated. 

“It’s amazing that I could just go right downstairs to get my vaccine,” said Christi, a tenant at Pamela’s Place.  

Isaiah, a faithful Fourth Street Clinic patient, felt relieved to get his vaccine and grateful to Fourth Street for making it easy for him. 

Fourth Street Clinic is a major player in mitigating the spread of the virus in community living situations, as they continue to increase access to the COVID-19 vaccine for Utah’s most vulnerable populations.  

“All Utah residents deserve access to the COVID-19 vaccine. Fourth Street Clinic has been a leader in making sure this happens,” said Alan Pruhs, executive director at the Association for Utah Community Health.   

“I am proud of Utah’s health centers, including Fourth Street Clinic, and their continued efforts to provide access to COVID-19 testing and vaccinations to underserved populations and communities across the state.” 

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Fourth Street Clinic has adapted to the changes to provide uninterrupted care to the populations they serve. In the early stages of the pandemic, they set up multiple tents to transform the clinic parking lot into a fully functional clinic.  

In June 2020, the mobile clinic began testing clients at Salt Lake’s three Homeless Resource Centers and other community partner locations to mitigate the spread of the virus in community living situations – administering more than 13,000 tests to date. 

They began offering doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in late January 2021. To date, they have administered more than 1,800 vaccines.
