Metro Coronavirus Task Force Chair Dr. Alex Jahangir says the clinic will hopefully reach community members who otherwise not sign up for a vaccine appointment at the Music City Center.
“We need to get more of our minorities in our city vaccinated. We need to get more young people vaccinated,” Dr. Jahangir said. “That happens by being intentional and by having leaders who people trust to get them there.”
The five-day event starts Monday and runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Hadley Park. <a href=”https://redcap.health.tn.gov/redcap/surveys/?s=CHRALDM4TY” target=”_blank”>You can sign up for an appointment by clicking here.</a>
