Pop-up clinic in Phoenix on Saturday to get free COVID-19 tests, vaccines and protective gear
PHOENIX — A pop-up clinic in Phoenix on Saturday will offer free COVID-19 tests and vaccines, as well as protective gear to help stem the spread of the virus.
The Cartwright Clinic will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Cartwright Elementary School (2825 N 59th Ave.) and is a partnership between Phoenix Councilor Yassamin Ansari, Chicanos Por La Causa, the Cartwright School District and Vincere Cancer Center a press release.
In addition to the tests and vaccines that are available for adults and children, attendees can pick up a free KN95 mask and rapid test to take home while supplies last. Bus passes will also be available.
Interested parties can either register online or come by on the day of the event.
Ansari added that people waiting in line can learn more about city governments that offer rent and utility relief and other financial assistance.
“Access to affordable rapid tests, KN95 masks and more continues to be a challenge in our city, state and country,” Ansari, who serves as the city’s seventh ward, said in the release. “When you work your typical 9-5, this becomes even more difficult.
“I want to remind people of the resources that are available to them – and their free time. I hope that this all-encompassing clinic can achieve that.”
We want to hear from you.
