Mobile vaccination van hits the streets in Placer County
Published June 7, 2021
A mobile vaccination van offering free, walk-up COVID-19 vaccinations has begun operating in Placer County, funded by the state and operated by SnapNurse, an on-demand nursing agency.
Over the next two months, the van will move throughout the county – from South Placer to North Tahoe – and offer vaccinations five days a week at a variety of hotspots, from the county fair to other high-traffic spaces and events.
This week, for example, the van will operate at the Westfield Galleria mall as well as at Denio’s in Roseville, alternatively offering Pfizer and Johnson and Johnson vaccines.
Monday through Wednesday, June 7-9
1151 Galleria Blvd, Roseville (across from parking structure)
10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Saturday through Sunday, June 12-13
Denio’s Farmer’s Market and Swap Meet
1551 Vineyard Rd, Roseville (main entrance; $5 parking fee)
7 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (*updated)
Locations, dates and times for future clinics will be posted to the county website at www.placer.ca.gov/vaccineclinics as well as shared via the county’s vaccine text alert platform (text PLACERVACCINE to the number 898211). Placer County Public Health is working with cities and community partners to identify appropriate events that might benefit from the SnapNurse van in June and July.
Additionally, Public Health is operating a handful of targeted community clinics in parts of the county with low vaccination rates or less access to healthcare. In addition to previously-announced clinics in Foresthill and Colfax this week, the team will offer J&J and Pfizer at the Placer County Government Center in North Auburn for several days this month:
