Antelope Valley Hospital, together with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has been working directly with the local school districts to provide teachers and school officials with the COVID-19 vaccine. “We (AVH) want to ensure our AV teachers are protected and that the children have the opportunity to go back to in-person learning and some sort normalcy. The children were our motivation to set up the clinic,” said Edward Mirzabegian, CEO of Antelope Valley Hospital.

The goal is to help vaccinate eligible people in the community in order to prevent further transmission of COVID-19, in addition to assisting in the process of getting schools to open back up as soon as possible. Currently, AVH is working with Acton-Agua Dulce Unified, Antelope Valley Union High, Gorman Joint, Hughes-Elizabeth Lakes Union Elementary, Keppel Union Elementary, Lancaster Elementary, Westside Union Elementary, and East Side Union. Teachers and staff from these schools are advised to contact their respective administration for questions and vaccination instructions. Leadership from other Antelope Valley private, charter, and local colleges are invited to contact mross.bauman@avhospital.org to inquire about getting their schools involved.
