ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) – Winnebago County Health Department wants to raise awareness about another vaccine clinic at a Rockford Church.
It will be on Friday from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Pilgrim Baprist on S. Central Avenue. That’s just south of Montague.
Organizers tell us they hope to improve vaccination rates in minorities. They add they were a little concerned about Tuesday’s low turnout.
“I don’t feel hopeless. I think that we will… our community will show up. The people we’re targeting will eventually come, and they will see that it’s a good thing that we’re asking them to do for the benefit of themselves as well as the community,” said Glennetta Coleman.
Walk-ins are welcomed at the vaccine clinic.
