“It doesn’t make sense when we are used to serving those who don’t have transportation, those who have language barriers, those without internet access, those who are experiencing homelessness who are already connected with us and already trust us, that we aren’t a fundamental part of the vaccine rollout,” said Anita Zamora, deputy director and COO of Venice Family Clinic.
