While the administration of vaccines was generally a success, the campaign experienced some inequitable road bumps. Fortunately, Family Health Centers at NYU Langone was able to offer the first round of the vaccine to older adults and staff at its affordable housing sites in Brooklyn by the end of January.
Our member Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry is doing what it can to level the playing field and guarantee that hundreds of people experiencing homelessness in Cleveland have access to the COVID-19 vaccine.
Traveling to a clinic to receive the vaccine can be challenging for many people in independent living homes. With access to vaccines still limited, Lutheran Services in America member The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society and Sanford Health got creative in bringing the vaccine to those who need it most.
