Vaccine Clinic Organized In SLC For Black Community, Refugees
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — A vaccine clinic was held in the parking lot of the Salt Lake Community College for all members of the Black community.
GK Folks Foundation, a nonprofit geared towards helping African immigrants and refugees, sponsored the clinic Saturday.
The group’s executive director said many people in the community have concerns about the vaccine, due in large part to misinformation and a lack of trust in the system.
“If the community leaders are able to take it themselves and encourage others, people will be more open to taking it,” said Gloria Mensah, executive director of the GK Folks Foundation. “I took it myself three weeks ago, and I posted it on all the social media and encouraged people to come today.”
