Central Coast VNA & Hospice


VNA is dedicated to providing the highest quality health care to residents of the Central Coast by meeting their individual needs in a caring, effective, honorable, and accessible manner.

The Big Idea

There is no Covid-19 vaccination yet, but there are many other illnesses we can prevent with vaccines. The VNA is dedicated to providing high-quality healthcare, and their latest initiative provides disease-preventing and life-saving immunization services to people of all ages and income levels. In addition to flu shots, the VNA provides adult vaccine boosters and school immunizations such as Tdap and meningitis, preventing 17 illnesses in total. The nonprofit’s vaccination clinics are offered in a safe environment, including at drive-through locations. Vaccines not only save lives, but also save healthcare dollars by preventing hospitalizations. In anticipation of a Covid-19 vaccine, they have implemented a new electronic record that improves efficiency, safely reduces direct patient contact, and automates information to the California Immunization Registry.

It was easy to make an appointment. I drove right up to the front door and the nurse was waiting for me. After my shot, I paid and made my next appointment right on the spot. I liked that it was done outside. I felt very safe.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
