VNA, a non-profit organization, has been providing care for residents of Monterey, San Benito, Santa Cruz, and South Santa Clara counties since 1951. When the vaccination for COVID-19 came out they began vaccinating those in Monterey County and providing clinics in many different locations where residents could have easier access to a vaccine. Throughout the majority of clinics data was being gathered to compare the attendance rates. Recommendations were made to VNA about how to improve their attendance rates at clinics after going through the data and having different conversations. Based on the data collected, there was evidence that suggested people in South County did have lower rates, which was something VNA expected. Some of the recommendations made were returning to popular clinic sites, providing incentives for vaccination, spreading the word before clinics, and providing accessible information.
