Great opportunity in my part-time role as Social Worker for Peoples’ Self-Help Housing in Morro Bay, CA. Three different properties (which are basically across two locations.
Aside from wellness and advocacy engagements, it’s now all about getting people (if they want my help) for COVID-19 vaccinations.
Two main areas to assist are filling out the form and then scheduling. Property Managers have been great, so I’ve been filling out the form with resident on phone, saving the file, emailing it to Property Manager, who then prints and hand-delivers. I even thought ahead by sending over both forms (for DOSE1 and DOSE2). The other area is the actual scheduling, which is more about tracking the SLO County website and plugging in an appointment when it’s available.
Right now, there are three locations – Cuesta College (desired), Arroyo Grande and Paso Robles.
They’re doing both Moderna and Pfizer right now.
After the first dose, then the trick is scheduling the second dose (21 days for Pfizer and 28 days for Moderna).
You would be most resilient two weeks after the second dose.
In the meantime, it’s still about: wearing a mask (including double-masking if in congested public); social distancing; washing hands.
