One Brooklyn Health partners with community groups to spread the word on vaccine availability
One Brooklyn Health, which includes Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center, has been working with faith- and community-based organizations to get the word out about vaccine availability.
Now they are letting residents know that there is an available hotline.
Rep. Yvette Clark visited Kingsbrook Jewish Medical Center to monitor the vaccination process and meet with workers on Tuesday.
Rep. Clarke tells News 12 that she is vaccinated, as well as her senior parents. But she says there’s been mistrust and skepticism in communities of color that needs to be addressed.
She says she is happy to see the work that is being done in a community that is predominantly made up of Black and brown residents.
As residents ages 16 and older started to receive their vaccinations Tuesday, Clarke and staff members say it’s one step closer to returning to normal.
