In partnership with the Greater St. James Missionary Baptist Church, the Vanderburgh County Health Department will be holding a COVID-19 vaccination clinic on Wednesday, April 7.

The clinic will be held at the church's Community Recreation and Education Center (C-REC).

VCHD will administer up to 350 doses of the Moderna vaccine to not only members of the church's congregation, but other local churches.

According to VCHD, Reverend Richard Pollard and the church leadership are working to sign up members of their congregation and will be reaching out to other local African American churches in an effort to vaccinate anyone who is willing to receive the vaccine.

Anyone who receives the first dose of the vaccine on April 7 will receive the second dose on May 5 when the Health Department returns to St. James.

Rev. Pollard and the members of the St. James leadership team have been working with the VCHD for the last few weeks in an effort to increase the opportunity for people of color to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

The VCHD says it's excited to be a resource to the county's African American community and looks to its leaders to help protect the community through the vaccination efforts.

We're still waiting on the actual cold front to get here. That should arrive around dawn, bringing mainly light rain. The front may also be responsible for perking up a couple bands of heavier rain and lightning east of Evansville for midday Saturday.
