The Black Doctors COVID-19 Consortium held a walk-up vaccine clinic at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Spring House this past week, where 200 Montgomery County residents managed to get their vaccines, according to a staff report from CBS Philly.
Only people living in the county’s hardest-hit zip codes who are part of Phase 1-B were able to get their shots.
“This is a collaboration with Abington-Jefferson Hospital, where I am on staff, where they gave their allotment of vaccination to make sure Black and Brown communities had an opportunity to be served,” said Dr. Ala Stanford, the consortium’s founder.
This was the consortium’s first visit to Montgomery County. The organization’s goal is to reduce the incidence of disease and death from coronavirus among African Americans through education and advocacy.
