Vaccine Sites Lacking in Black, Hispanic Neighborhoods

SPH's Jeni Hebert-Beirne, PhD, interim associate dean for community engagement and director of the Collaboratory for Health Justice, was featured in an NPR story analyzing the lack of COVID-19 vaccine locations in neighborhoods across the U.S. south with predominant Black and Hispanic populations.

Alternative facilities come to mind.  Public libraries (an important source of free wifi), community centers/park districts, faith-based organizations, barber or beauty shops. These are places that people regularly convene and gather and places where people are more likely to feel they belong.
