On Saturday, April 10, Facebook opened up its doors, turning a building at its Menlo Park Headquarters into a COVID-19 vaccination site. We are proud to be working with Facebook to offer free shuttles for anyone who might need a ride to the clinic!
The clinic was created specifically to help the underserved neighboring communities hit hardest by the virus during the pandemic, including East Palo Alto, and the communities of North Fair Oaks and Belle Haven. This decision came after it was reported that Menlo Park's neighborhood, Belle Haven, reported 52% of the city's COVID-19 cases. Now, with more and more community members becoming vaccinated, our neighbors can stay safe and contribute to the safety of the larger Bay Area community.
Mosaic Global Transportation's vehicles could be spotted, driving around Menlo Park all day on Saturday, as we transported some of the most vulnerable members of our community to the pop-up clinic.
Our increased vehicle sanitization procedures are now more important than ever. Equipped with hand sanitizer, plexiglass dividers between the chauffeur and passenger areas, and an enforced mask policy, our staff and passengers can ride to the vaccination site in peace, knowing that they are getting a free and safe transportation experience.
During the course of one day, this location can offer up to 1,200 doses. With no appointment necessary, the barrier of availability has been removed, allowing for anyone to take advantage of these important health precautions. With a more rapid and streamlined vaccination option open, we hope that our local rate of vaccination will steadily increase.
We know how important vaccinations are in the journey to return to normalcy in a post-COVID 19 world and are proud to be partnering with Facebook in this way. We look forward to continuing to help our local community with their health and transportation needs in the weeks to come.
