FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
FOUNTAIN VALLEY MAYOR MICHAEL VO, CANDIDATE FOR ORANGE COUNTY SUPERVISOR, CALLS FOR IMMEDIATE COVID-19 VACCINE PROGRAM AND ANNOUNCES INTENTION TO OPEN COMMUNITY SERVICE CENTER
Fountain Valley, CA – In the urgency of life or death, candidate for County supervisor, Fountain Valley Mayor Michael Vo is calling for the Orange County Health Care Agency and Orange County Board of Supervisors to immediately create a COVID-19 Vaccination Program that will benefit all residents, with a focus on those qualified for vaccination in underserved communities, often ignored populations, veterans and seniors, the vision and hearing impaired, residents with physical disabilities, and those with technological and transportation challenges or limitations.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has touched every life around the Country and Orange County is not an exception. Here in Orange County, thousands of seniors who should have already received the COVID-19 vaccination to protect themselves are being left without the necessary resources to schedule their vaccination and receive transportation to the County’s vaccination super sites,” Mayor Vo stated.
Currently, vision impaired residents, those with physical disabilities, veterans and seniors, residents without necessary technological access or skills, those without transportation, and non-English speaking residents are being abandoned and left without assistance. As the fifth largest county in America and with vast resources available, Orange County must set up a genuine, practical program to help those within the County’s underserved communities and the County’s most vulnerable population to get vaccinated.
Mayor Vo added, “Lip service is easy to come by for many elected officials. But when faced with a life or death situation, lip service is not good enough. As County Supervisor, I will implement the aforementioned program and will spearhead a Community Service Center in the 2nd District so that all Orange County residents can be better served.”
