Local vaccination success at Meriam Park

02.04.2021

CHICO, Calif., Feb. 4, 2021 – Enloe Medical Center, in collaboration with Butte County Public Health, has successfully vaccinated more than 7,500 Butte County residents at its community clinic space donated by local business leader Dan Gonzales, developer of Meriam Park and owner of Fifth Sun.

Working within the parameters set by the county, the Enloe community clinic is currently vaccinating Butte County residents who are 65 and older. As vaccine supply is available, vaccination schedules are provided on Butte County Public Health’s website at www.buttecounty.net/COVIDvaccine.

“The donation of space at Meriam Park was an essential component of our initial vaccination plan,” said Enloe’s President & CEO Mike Wiltermood. “We could not have achieved this level of early success without Dan’s help.”

Last week, Enloe Foundation announced a significant gift from Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. founder Ken Grossman and his wife, Katie Gonser. The $750,000 gift is used as a matching grant fund to support community vaccination operations. In addition to Gonzales’ donation of space, Fifth Sun made a cash donation of $75,000, which will be matched by Grossman and Gonser’s gift.

“We are so grateful for the support of our community as we work toward providing vaccines to Butte County residents,” Wiltermood added. “This, of course, includes the matching grant from Ken and Katie, and donations from businesses like Golden Valley Bank Community Foundation, Fifth Sun, Tri Counties Bank, The Foor Foundation, Harris & Plottel LLP, Chico Electric, and NorthStar. We also thank the neighboring businesses at Meriam Park and the dozens of volunteers who have made our clinic team and patients feel welcome and safe. We simply could not accomplish this task without the support of our community.”
