We need everyone’s help in spreading the opportunity for COVID-19 vaccinations at the FEMA site, Four Seasons Town Centre, Greensboro. Please assist us in getting the word out to fill 1620 appointments for in person (walk in) individuals from Historically Marginalized communities before it goes public. Please contact me as I am a community partner volunteering to schedule persons till the end of the 8 weeks (end of April). According to their statistics, of the 24,000 vaccines administered at this site: over 22% have gone to people who identify as Black or African American; over 14% have gone to those from Hispanic or LatinX ethnicities! The drive thru has been 99% popular thus limited appointments!
Please encourage as many people as possible, especially our youth and young adults, to consider receiving the vaccine. The health and wellness of our community is of utmost importance. Let us all do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19 and its variants!
