(SAVANNAH, GA) Healthy Savannah and the YMCA of Coastal Georgia are partnering with historically Black churches across the Savannah area to help raise awareness of the COVID-19 and flu vaccines.
“It’s vitally important that people have access to the vaccine, and to straight answers to their questions about COVID-19,” said Nichele Hoskins, communication manager at Healthy Savannah. “By partnering with several faith-based communities, Healthy Savannah continues to help get information and vaccine to Black and Hispanic people who continue to be hard hit by the virus.”
Community events to be held in October and November include a cooking class, a food festival, and community concerts. They share the common theme of helping bring people together safely to celebrate, remember, dispel myths, and express solidarity and hope during the coronavirus pandemic.
