Catholic Community Services, Fourth Street Federally Qualified Health Center, and the Salt Lake County Health Department worked with the HUD Salt Lake City Office to sponsor a Vaccine Block Party in downtown Salt Lake City in an area frequented by people experiencing homelessness. In addition to vaccines, the hosts provided lunch, live music, prizes, and games created a festive street fair atmosphere and helped to bolster attendance, which exceeded 200 people. Field Office Director Kelly Jorgensen worked with partners to conduct outreach to HUD-assisted households to increase attendance and get shots in arms for HUD residents.
