Medical Presence

I will continue to work to find a solution to our lack of medical presence. I have been somewhat successful in getting recognition of our underserved status. I have worked with Kaiser and obtained a commitment from them to place a mobile unit in our city. As a show of commitment, I did get them to provide free flu shots last year. I am working to make this happen again for this year’s flu season and perhaps for Covid-19 shots when they become available. As transportation to and from medical appointments is a problem for elderly and immobile residents, I have worked with STA to develop the Solano Mobility Medical Trip Concierge Service, also called Go-Go Granddaddy. Under this program, registered seniors can call for a ride to and from a scheduled medical appointment. The program will subsidize 60% of the cost. I will continue to advocate funding for this program.
