NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Nashville will host a virtual town hall as part of its campaign to increase vaccinations in communities of color.
The event, which will be held via Zoom, will take place on Thursday, March 4, at 6 p.m. Metro says it will be an “important community conversation on reducing barriers to choosing and getting the vaccine in Nashville.”
The event will be hosted by Deputy Mayor Brenda Haywood, Rep. Harold Love Jr. and Dr. Joanna Shaw-KaiKai. Click here for information on how to join the Zoom.
Two weeks ago, Mayor John Cooper announced a city-wide campaign to increase the number of vaccinations in communities of color. During that COVID briefing, Dr. Shaw-KaiKai also said the campaign includes mobile vaccination teams going out into communities, and that will be especially important once Metro enters Phase 1c, which includes those with underlying heath conditions.
