Hi Austin friends! My son and his McCombs grad student roommate are looking for a third roommate for the fall - spring (12 month lease) for a 3bed/2 bath unit off of Rio Grande and 29th in West Campus (near Cabo Bob’s). This roommate would have their own bedroom and ensuite bathroom - so it can be a girl or boy! Rent is approx $1000 which includes parking and utilities. Built in 2015 and I looked at it today - it’s a great unit! Ideally looking for someone who is an upperclassman, grad student, or post grad. We are pushing for move in on August 1 but move in is August 7 at the latest. Let me know if you know anyone looking last minute. Text 210.241.6583. Thank you!

Local vaccine partnership targets left out health care workers 02/09/2021

Local vaccine partnership targets left out health care workers

https://www.kxan.com/news/local/travis-county/local-vaccine-partnership-targets-left-out-healthcare-workers/

The Travis County Medical Alliance in the news for helping with vaccine clinics.

Local vaccine partnership targets left out health care workers Thousands of local healthcare workers not affiliated with large hospitals are finally getting the COVID-19 shot.

Photos from Travis County Medical Alliance & Foundation's post 01/27/2021

A coalition led by the Travis County Medical Society has successfully vaccinated over 3,500 local front-line healthcare workers and first responders.

This critical vaccination effort was made possible through a public private partnership that includes Code 4 Emergency Services, Travis County Medical Society, Travis County Medical Alliance, St. David's HealthCare, Austin Independent School District, and Austin Public Health.
In late December, Austin based Code 4 Emergency Services identified that front-line medical workers lacked access to the vaccine. As a Licensed Health Care Organization and vaccination distributor, Code 4 reached out to the Travis County Medical Society, which has represented the medical profession in Travis County since 1853 and has a long history of responding to public health crises dating back to the Polio vaccine.

In order to get the COVID-19 vaccine to phase 1a health care workers in need, a coalition of organizations came together:
Code 4 Emergency Services provided the vaccine, medical professionals, and logistical know how
AISD provided the venue, security, and janitorial staff
Travis County Medical Society provided outreach, call takers, and support staff
Travis County Medical Alliance provided volunteer greeters and scribes
St. David’s HealthCare provided supplemental vaccine

On December 28, Code 4 accepted delivery of their first vaccine allocation and within hours opened a clinic. Since then, through the incredible efforts of the coalition, more than 3,500 doctors, clinical staff, and first responders have been vaccinated. These clinicians are now in the process of receiving their second dose, marking a major milestone for our local medical community.

Alliance members were once again honored to assist with the Travis County Medical Society and Code 4 Emergency Services Vaccine clinic January 14-16, 2021. Members scribed for EMS crews administering the vaccine, assisted registration and traffic control efforts. One EMS worker stated "we couldn't have done this without the help of the Alliance!"

A big shout-out to community partners and volunteers for working with the Travis County Medical Alliance Foundation to put on a highly successful flu vaccination clinic Oct. 24. With the assistance of the Texas Medical Association Foundation (Be Wise Immunize grant) Caring for Children Foundation of Texas (vaccines), UT School of Nursing staff and students (shot administration), and Sacred Heart Community Clinic (location and logistics), over 290 free flu shots were delivered to the uninsured and under-insured of central Texas. This couldn't have happened without the collaboration and commitment of all the organizations involved. An additional thank you to HEB - Westlake and Office Depot - Anderson Lane for supplies and snacks to make the morning run smoothly. Travis County and Williamson County Alliance members look forward to future collaborative events that improve the health of central Texas! #stayhealthy #haveyoureceivedyourflushot #wearyourmaskinpublic
