MOVE IT UP Project featured on
UC Davis Health News

Vaccines have been widely available for about a year. But, MOVE IT UP leaders are concerned that some members of racial and ethnic groups still lag behind other groups on immunizations. 

In fact, that’s why UC Davis Health, the UC Davis School of Medicinestudent-run clinics and Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing have all taken a leading role across the Sacramento region to break down barriers and make the vaccines more accessible to the underserved. In addition, a major effort last year started by the UC Davis Health ambulatory division has provided hundreds of thousands of doses to patients and community members in standalone and pop-up clinics.
