Vaccination Event Is Saturday At Bethlehem Center

Monday, June 21, 2021

American Family Care in partnership with the Bethlehem Center and Councilwoman Raquetta Dotley will host a vaccination event on Saturday from 12-3 p.m. at the Bethlehem Center, 200 w. 38th St. 

The event is part of the ongoing effort to distribute vaccines to communities with limited access.

This event is open to the public and no appointments are necessary for those who would like to get vaccinated. Vaccinations will be distributed on a first come first serve basis.

Individuals will have the option to choose between the J&J (Janssen) one dose vaccine as well as the Moderna vaccine. American Family Care has also agreed to come back to distribute the second dose for those who receive Moderna after the 28 day waiting period.

“We encourage everyone that would like to get vaccinated to attend this event," said Councilwoman Dotley. "These are the type of partnerships that we need in our communities to ensure everyone has access to the resources they need to thrive.”
