By: Leah Pezzetti

Family Health Centers of San Diego hosted free, no appointment necessary vaccines for healthcare workers and anyone 65 or older. It was a one-day event from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 6, 2021.

The address is 823 Gateway Center Way, San Diego, CA 92102.

The site had 1,000 vaccines to distribute, and organizers said any leftovers will go to their clinics.

“No pain no sweat, not even a pinch. She’s an expert,” said one woman, moments after she was vaccinated at the walk-up event Saturday.

Throughout the first half of the day, the wait time was only about 15 minutes.

“Oh we were so excited and happy that we wouldn’t have to stand in line for hours`,” said Patti Dame, who said she found out about the event from her daughter.

For anyone who missed the no-appointment day, there will still be opportunities to get vaccinated through Family Health Centers of San Diego.
