The United Medical Center Mobile Health Clinic is providing coronavirus testing and vaccines to vulnerable sections of D.C. and Prince George’s County, bringing those services directly to the residents’ neighborhoods via a 38-foot-van.

The van functions as a mobile doctor’s office, serving those who can’t or won’t travel to get vaccinated, WJLA-TV (Channel 7) reported.

“It feels so good to come out to give services to people, some of them are 100 years old,” Teresa Korvah, one of the clinic’s nurses, told WJLA. “That is the best part of my job, coming to inoculate these people and making sure that they have their COVID shots, instead of worrying where to go. That makes me feel real good.”

The mobile clinic sets up shop each week in various locations throughout the region, particularly in D.C.’s Wards 7 and 8, parking for the entire day while servicing as many as 80 people.

For information about registering for the clinic, call 202-574-6473.
