According to our friends at NBC news...the General Consulate of Mexico in Los Angeles will offer a day of free medical services for people in LA County all day Wednesday. That's tomorrow, Wednesday, May 11, between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., at the Consulate headquarters at 2401 W. 6th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90057. They will also provide assistance in enrolling folks in health insurance plans, and vaccines against Covid over the age of 5, regardless of nationality or immigration status.
No appointment is required to receive the services, regardless of nationality or immigration status. They're also not limited to Spanish-speakers -- anyone speaking English can also call the Mexican Consulate for assistance.
The services include:
- Medical consultations are available to people who are homeless, who live in a shelter or who do not have a fixed address qualify for these services.
- Enrollment in health coverage programs will be available to everyone, regardless of immigration status.
- Vaccines against COVID-19, which includes pediatric doses, first and second doses, first booster shots, and second booster shots for people over age 50, will be administered to people over 5 years old. Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be available.
The services are available thanks to a joint effort of the Consulate's Health Window and the Clinica Monsenor Oscar. A Romero community health center. I hope a TON of folks take advantage of this 🙂 For more information, please contact the Health Window at 213-351-6826 or firstname.lastname@example.org
