Memorial Baptist Church and Black Nurses of Evansville are working to make sure our under-served communities have access to the COVID-19 vaccine. The organization teamed up with Ascension Saint Vincent to host a clinic over the weekend with a goal to vaccinate more than 100 people.
Arlinda Payne is the founder of Black Nurses of Evansville, she's been working to get the vaccine to black and brown communities in the River City, "It feels wonderful. We're just trying to get everybody safe and vaccinated," said Payne.
Black Nurses of Evansville will host two clinics this week. The first will be happening Wednesday, April 7th at Greater St. James Community Recreation & Education Center. The Rec center is located at 484 S. Governor Street in Evansville. Hours will be from 9a.m.-3p.m.
A second clinic will be open Saturday, April 10th at Zion Missionary Baptist Church located at 1800 S. Governor St. in Evansville. It will run from 9a.m.-1p.m. Walk-ins are welcome but if you'd like more information or want to register you should call (812) 401-4449 and ask for Sis Lana or dial (812) 453-2084 and ask for Sis Karen. The vaccine will be available to anyone 16+ but 16 and 17 year olds will need parental consent.
