SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – UC Santa Barbara’s Early Childhood Care and Education Services is partnering with the California Department of well being to host a free COVID-19 vaccine clinic.

“I’m very glad now that daycares are reopened and just sort of can work without children in the background,” stated Kim.
As society is returning to a “new normal,” Kim has determined to get her kids vaccinated.
“It’s important as we rejoin the community and we’re around grandparents [that we are] just making them safer and making the community safer,” stated Kim.
She is thrilled that the vaccination program at UCSB is making the vaccination course of easy and hassle- free.
Kids from 6 months to 11 years will get a particular Moderna shot made particularly for their smaller our bodies.
Annette Muse, the UCSB Director of Early Childhood Care and Education Services, helped manage this occasion in partnership with the California Department of Health.
“I personally feel that the vaccine is helpful and hope that families, you know, see it that way as well. But it’s certainly their decision and important for them to come to that decision themselves,” stated Muse.
The occasion runs Wednesday, July twenty seventh from 8 am to 2 pm on the Orfalea Family Children’s Center on West Campus Point Lane in Isla Vista.
Walk-ins are welcome. Insurance just isn’t required.
