On August 5, 2021, the State of California Department of Public Health issued a vaccine requirement for all workers in healthcare facilities. This requirement applies to all employees and volunteers at APLA Health & Wellness.

In response, we require that all volunteers provide proof of vaccination before your volunteer day by emailing a copy to Avelasco@apla.org and bring proof with you day of the event to verify with on-site staff. Those without a vaccine card will not be permitted to volunteer. Thank you for being so cooperative.
