Medical Clinic on the Road

In Contra Costa County, Calif., a fleet of seven mobile clinics provides vital and immediate medical care. The specially built mobile clinics are modern command centers that provide health, vision, and dental care anywhere on the road or in a large-scale emergency. They serve more than 30 elementary, middle, and high schools in five school districts. In 2015, the vehicles provided more than 13,500 appointments to children and youth, according to Carlos Velasquez, fleet manager for the county.

The county is also planning to add two dental units to provide dental services to the homeless as well as children and youth in need.
