42 individuals received COVID vaccine Sunday afternoon at a Laotian clinic that was held at the East Early Childhood School in Storm Lake.

The clinic targeted a specific group of elderly Laotian community members. John and Pom Kavan were the lead organizers for the event, with assistance from SALUD and Hy-Vee.

A collaborate effort is being conducted over the next few weeks to reach specific ethnic communities in the Storm Lake area to provide them with information and administration of COVID-19 vaccine.

Pre-registration is required. Online registration is here to get signed up. Online sign-up assistance will be available at the Extension Office in Storm Lake.
