With more individuals now eligible for the vaccine, there has been a large response for Hoosiers wanting to receive it. But, the Vanderburgh County Health Department has noticed a lack of minorities signing up.
"If they don't have access to the hospitals, they can come here, we're in walking distance," says Deacon Emmitt Trammil.
Through the month of March, local health officials have been working closely with the NAACP, and the Black Nurses of Evansville to find new convenient places to host these clinics.
"We urge the African American community and the Hispanic community to get the shot, it's totally safe," says Trammil.
Wednesday, the VCHD and the Black Nurses of Evansville hosted a vaccine clinic at the Greater St. James church. Officials say they chose this location, so those who live around, don't have to worry about finding transportation.
For those who couldn't make today's clinic, The Black Nurses of Evansville will host another vaccine clinic Saturday.
