Original post made on May 5, 2021

Community clinics have helped boost COVID-19 vaccination rates in hard-hit San Mateo County neighborhoods, but there are still pockets of people the effort has not yet reached.

Maybe vaccination rates would be greater in East Palo Alto if the city put signs on Newbridge that stated the actual site of the vaccinations. The signs with the words “vaccinations” (in English going one direction and Spanish going the other) and arrows to follow (my favorite are the north bound facing arrows that include a right hand u-turn) but no specific site to go to are severely disappointing. Does the city government of East Palo Alto really think residents are unable to read well enough to make signs saying “Vaccinations available at Cesar Chavez Middle School”? If the city really thinks that, this is both disappointing and scary.

Also, why is East Palo Alto not included as resident city in the Almanac comment section? Living less than 400 yards from Belle Haven would seem to indicate that we have more in common with Menlo Park than Woodside and Portola Valley. Does the lack of inclusion in the Almanac community listings connect with the almost word less vaccination arrow signs?
