Guatemalan and Latina/o/x communities are invited to attend a COVID-19 vaccination event on Friday, Aug. 20, from 4 to 8 p.m. at La Juquilita Mexican grocery store located at 312 SW Coast Highway, Newport. Attendees will receive a $25 gift voucher for groceries.

Spanish and Mam translators will be on hand to reduce barriers, and professionals will answer questions surrounding the vaccines. The event, co-hosted by Olalla Center and Lincoln County Public Health, will mark the 13th vaccination clinic by Olalla Center. Hundreds of Lincoln County’s underserved residents received shots as a result. Although Olalla Center events are geared toward Guatemalan and Latina/o/x populations, all people are welcome and encouraged to attend.

For more information about the event and to reserve a slot (not required), call 541-819-0436 or 541-283-5876.
