Move ‘Mobile Outreach for Vaccine Equity’ Program

An effort to scale up mobile vaccinations in some of the most vulnerable parts of Los Angeles by administering vaccine doses through mobile units in some of the hardest hit communities.

Key Impact

Provided more than 100,000 vaccine doses
10 mobile teams
490+ clinics

The Mobile Outreach for VAccine Equity (MOVE) program was launched to deploy vaccine access for communities most impacted by COVID-19. Working closely with community based organizations, the City and the County, MOVE clinics assisted residents to address barriers to vaccination such as lack of transportation, poor internet access, inflexibility in work hours, misinformation or hesitancy.  Ten rotating mobile units were deployed with a focus on those communities with higher infection rates and included a mobile night clinic in South LA. Each unit had a capacity to vaccinate 200 people per day, with the ability to scale up that number as more supplies arrived. Overall, 90% of MOVE first doses went to people of color.  The Fund also supported transportation resources for vulnerable residents and a proactive direct-call outreach program to contact disabled and homebound individuals.
