Neighborhood Health welcomed President Joe Biden to their vaccination clinic yesterday.
President Biden highlighted the importance of equity in vaccinating in communities hardest hit by the pandemic.
Neighborhood Health has seven vaccination sites in areas accessible to underserved communities in Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax County.
Working with community partners, particularly from African American churches; organizations serving Latino and Asian communities; and agencies focused on food assistance, legal aid, affordable housing, tenants’ rights, and social services; Neighborhood Health is working to improve vaccine accessibility in communities disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.
Thanks to these robust community partnerships, Neighborhood Health has already administered 20,000 vaccines; of those who reported their ethnicity and race, more than 85% have been to people of color. Currently, approximately 5,000 individuals per week are being vaccinated.
