Minority Community Investment Coalition responds to COVID-19 with vaccination clinics

The Minority Community Investment Coalition went the extra mile on February 19 to help community members fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

The organization hosted a vaccination clinic to take a stand against COVID-19 by helping to ensure members of the Erie community receive a COVID-19 vaccine.

Those who wish to receive the Pfizer vaccine can visit clinics every 21 days to receive it. Those wishing to receive the Moderna vaccine can visit clinics every 28 days.

The Minority Community Investment Coalition is notifying individuals when to return for the second dose of the vaccine to make the process easy and convenient.

The organization considers their goal of ensuring good health in the community to be of great importance.

“Anything you can do to help people who lack knowledge, especially when they are looking for it, so that you can be that person, that organization that you can go to and get the answers you need, the care, the help, the service you need. It reigns supreme and that’s what MCIC is all about,” said Bernice Green, Health Disparities Coordinator at MCIC.
