Description:

The Mommy Van is a mobile health clinic that parks in church parking lots and community centers in a medically underserved area called East Palo Alto. We provide women's health services including pregnancy testing, prenatal care, contraception, annual gyn exams and gyn care. Since many of our patients are immigrants, we do a complete screening for vaccination status. We provide Td (when available), hepatitis B and MMR vaccination.

As most of these patients come from Mexico, Central America, and Pacific Islands such as Tonga and Samoa, we have a high rate of non-immunization/under-immunization. When indicated, we also screen for HIV and hepatitis C. We are often the first and only medical care that these women have received.
