BROWNSVILLE, Texas, May 19, 2021 — Molina Healthcare of Texas (“Molina”) recently hosted a series of four COVID-19 vaccine clinics with Su Clinica to inoculate over 1,000 Brownsville residents.
“The health of the Rio Grande Valley depends on residents getting the COVID-19 vaccine, and Molina is committed to doing all we can to help facilitate this process,” said Sheila Shelton, director of community engagement at Molina Healthcare of Texas. “Now is the time to come together to protect the health of our families, friends, and neighbors, and we urge continued collaboration between the health care, municipal, community and corporate sectors to help Texas emerge from this pandemic stronger than ever.”
“Partnerships are essential in reaching vulnerable and high-risk communities, and our collaboration with Molina made a tremendous difference as we worked to provide education to help residents feel informed, prepared, and ultimately comfortable receiving the vaccine,” said Dr. C.T. Reddy, chief medical officer for Su Clinica. “This partnership is part of Molina Healthcare and Su Clinica’s efforts to help get as many Rio Grande Valley residents vaccinated as possible.”
