PHOTO RELEASE: Maryland Vaccine Equity Task Force Conducts Clinic at Union Baptist Church
ANNAPOLIS, MD—Lieutenant Governor Boyd K. Rutherford was on hand today at Union Baptist Church in Baltimore City for a Maryland Vaccine Equity Task Force clinic. The clinic, facilitated in partnership with Safeway, provided 250 doses of the Moderna vaccine.
“This is a safe haven in the community, so people feel comfortable coming here and getting the vaccine,” said Lt. Governor Rutherford. “Not everyone can get Downtown. That’s why we have worked with the faith community and nonprofits to make sure we reach into the community and meet people where they are.”
The lieutenant governor was joined by Brigadier General Janeen Birckhead, head of the Maryland Vaccine Equity Task Force, and Reverend Alvin C. Hathaway, Sr., pastor of Union Baptist Church.
