UPDATE: MOBILE VACCINE CLINIC AVAILABLE FOR CD7 RESIDENTS

Posted on 04/16/21

Sunland-Tujunga Community Council

Attention CD7 residents! The pandemic has disproportionately impacted the Northeast San Fernando Valley, especially in working class, Latino neighborhoods. With many residents working in essential jobs and living in crowded, multigenerational households, the virus has spread quickly through the community, and our case rates and fatality rates have been high. We are happy to offer a mobile vaccine clinic that brings vaccinations right here into the district, easing access for those that may not have internet access or transportation to get to far-away vaccine sites.

We are currently taking FIRST DOSE appointments for our mobile vaccination clinic, which will be in Pacoima this week, Sylmar next week, and back in Sunland-Tujunga the following week. Anyone with an appointment at one of our pop-up vaccine sites in Council District 7 will receive a Pfizer vaccine. These pop-up locations are walk-up, not drive-thru, and will provide FREE vaccines by appointment regardless of immigration status. As of this week, anyone over the age of 16 is now eligible to receive a vaccination. Please see the attached flyers for more information.

If you have any questions or would like to get scheduled right away, please contact our Sylmar District Office at (818) 756-8409, Pacoima District Office at (818) 485-0600, or Sunland-Tujunga District Office at (818) 352-3287 to make an appointment for your vaccine. Please spread the word so we can get all of our community members vaccinated and protected from this virus. Thank you, and stay safe!!

Healthy Buildings, Healthy Places

Healthy Buildings, Healthy Places


In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, this initiative will build upon the Citywide Design Guidelines by reinforcing linkages between health, equity, and planning; and recognizing the role that building design can play in promoting favorable health outcomes, particularly in communities of color that have long suffered from disinvestment. The guide will introduce practical strategies that place people first in the design of buildings and public spaces, through measures such as: adaptable indoor/outdoor common areas that animate shared spaces; placement of staircases to promote physical activity; usable balconies and outdoor rooms to provide areas of respite from stress and overcrowding; improved indoor air and daylighting; and special design considerations for at-risk populations in group living quarters such as nursing homes, which have been hard-hit by COVID-19.
