Benevilla Vaccine Clinics
Registration, Consents and Additional Resources
In January 2021, Benevilla Home Services embarked on a mission to help create safe and simple access to the Corona Virus vaccine for the sick and shut-in seniors that we serve. Through an amazing partnership with Albertsons Osco Pharmacy in Surprise, AZ we have not only been able to help our members but to extend this essential opportunity to various populations in the community we serve and surrounding areas. Our goals are ambitious and our mission is pure of heart. We strive to provide solutions, resources and piece of mind.

Dear Benevilla families and friends,
We, as many others, have recently become aware of the growing health concerns surrounding the administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. On Tuesday morning the FDA and CDC called for a national pause of the vaccine’s usages following major concerns of the appearance of a rare blood clotting disorder noted in 6 female vaccine recipients. Although none of these adverse effects occurred in the state of Arizona and are currently being considered “extremely rare” we as an organization have moved to cease and deist the administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and to proceed with the 1st does of the Pfizer vaccine for the April 24th vaccine clinic. The 2nd dose is scheduled for May 22nd.
If you currently have a scheduled appointment with us and now no longer want your vaccine please contact us in writing at BV_VaccineClinic2021@benevilla.org or by phone at 623-584-4999 to cancel.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused but community health and well being are always at the forefront of our minds.

• AHCCCS officials say that beginning Monday they are reimbursing their contracted driving services for transportation to and from vaccine appointments, including time spent waiting in line during the drive-thru vaccination process. The rides count as “non-emergency medical transportation” and are now a covered expense, agency officials said.
Medicaid beneficiaries who have a scheduled COVID-19 vaccination appointment at a drive-through site in Arizona may contact their health plan to schedule nonemergency transportation to attend that appointment, AHCCCS officials said.
• A Note from Valley of the Sun YMCA: Yes this is open to all seniors in Maricopa county – and we will transport to any COVID-19 vaccination site within Maricopa county. The Y will begin providing free rides for aging adults to reach their COVID-19 vaccination appointments, removing a barrier to vaccine access for some of the most vulnerable members of our communities. We are also recruiting additional volunteers to act as drivers, to sustain this program long-term.
To qualify for a free ride, the individual must be 65+ years old, and have a vaccine appointment. All ride scheduling and volunteer inquiries will be handled through YOPAS. Please direct individuals to contact the YOPAS hotline and email account:
602 – 212 – 6088 / email@example.com
For Vaccination Rides:
When they call, they should have their vaccination appointment date, time and location ready. This service is for individuals who have appointments, we cannot schedule vaccination appointments.
•The Area Agency on Aging is offering rides to COVID-19 vaccine & other medical appointments. Call the 24-Hour Senior HELP LINE to sign up at 602-264-4357.
