El Camino Health and LinkedIn Open Vaccination Center
El Camino Health and LinkedIn have joined forces to increase the capacity for COVID-19 vaccinations in Santa Clara County. The partners opened a community vaccination center to supply vaccinations to as many people as possible.
The clinic, which is housed in an unoccupied LinkedIn building leased by Synopsys in Sunnyvale, has provided vaccines on a limited basis since March 15 due to a constrained vaccine supply. The building could support up to 3,000 vaccinations a day as sufficient vaccine supply becomes available.
“It’s vitally important that we get the COVID-19 vaccine into as many arms as possible and as quickly as we can,” said Dan Woods, chief executive officer of El Camino Health. “As additional vaccine supply becomes available, having locations like this one ready to go will speed up immunizations. This is our quickest path to resuming life as we knew it before the pandemic.”
The El Camino Healthcare District recently approved $1 million to support district vaccinations and engaged El Camino Health to manage the effort. The city of Sunnyvale coordinated the permitting process to enable an expeditious opening of the vaccine clinic.
The site has easy access off State Route 237 and bus access via Valley Transportation Authority Route 21. Appointments for vaccinations may be scheduled online or by calling 408-871-7460.
