Vaccination event held to serve vulnerable populations
(PHOENIX - March 16, 2023) – Dignity Health in Arizona hosted a COVID-19 vaccination event at Pilgrim Rest Baptist Church in an effort to make the COVID-19 vaccine more accessible to the underserved community.
The outreach event was developed to help the vulnerable populations in the heart of central Phoenix who may have difficulty scheduling a COVID-19 vaccine appointment or traveling to a vaccination site located outside of their neighborhood. It’s also an opportunity to further educate the community about the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine.
“This COVID-19 vaccination effort is truly an extension of Dignity Health’s mission,” said Heather James, director of nursing and quality assurance for the Dignity Health Medical Group. “For decades, our organization has adapted to meet the needs of our community. Our goal is to make the COVID-19 vaccination process simple and accessible for all, including the underserved.”
Dignity Health in Arizona is proud to be part of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, and make the vaccine more accessible to underserved communities.
