COVID-19 vaccinations, flu shots offered at Western Dental parking lot before Super Bowl

Dental service provider Western Dental partnered with the NFL Alumni Association-Southern California Chapter, Walgreens and Water and Power Community Credit Union to offer free COVID-19 and flu vaccinations and COVID-19 antigen testing before the Super Bowl LVI.

The community event took place Feb. 12 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Inglewood, Calif., less than a mile from the Feb. 13 Super Bowl site. Vaccines were administered by Walgreens licensed pharmacists in the parking lot of a Western Dental office.

"These resources come at a crucial time in the pandemic," said Edwin Rivera, Western Dental's senior vice president of external engagement. "Though vaccines have been available to the public for nearly a year, not all areas have had equal access to them. We are happy to be a partner in expanding access to both initial vaccinations and booster shots via this event."
