The Vanderburgh County Health Department is working with local leaders on getting minorities vaccinated, including the Black Nurses Association, as well as NAACP president, Rev. Gerald Arnold -- who has been hosting Facebook town halls during the pandemic.
They are working to find new locations within the city, to host easily accessible vaccine clinics.
Access, along with transportation to and from -- and even a lack of information -- are some of the biggest challenges to overcome.
"We want to expand that -- we want to make sure we have access to that,” said Joe Gries, administrator at the Vanderburgh County Health Department. “We want to be a resource for them -- so working with their leadership -- we feel like we can continue to increase those numbers to make sure everyone is protected and recieves some equal access."
The plan is to start opening these clinics targeting minorities as early as April at churches and community centers.
