Veterans vaccinated at LA-area American Legion posts | The American Legion

On Saturday, March 6, American Legion Post 790 in West Covina, Calif., provided facilities for the VA Medical Center of Greater Los Angeles to conduct a vaccination clinic for veterans.

Rob Merchant, executive director of ambulatory care for the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System put the alliance this way: “We are making an effort … with The American Legion here to bring the vaccines where veterans are, not where the VA is.”

The March 6 clinic was the first among several planned for the San Gabriel Valley region of Los Angeles County over the next month. Most of the vaccination events will be conducted at American Legion posts, such as Post 261 in El Monte this week.
