Four Black Medical Schools get $6M to Widen Vaccine Outreach
Following the announcement of a Bloomberg Philanthropies gift to support mobile vaccines, MSM is featured in a recent Associated Press story.
“Each of the schools will use the money to buy additional mobile vaccination units to expand current community outreach efforts. The vehicle is key because it helps provide refrigeration for vaccines, said Morehouse School of Medicine President and Dean Valerie Montgomery Rice.
“Morehouse has vaccinated 5,200 people so far, but Rice said the grant will allow the school to increase the number of shots it gives by 500 to 1,000 a week
“’We have been doing this at a snail’s pace, but with these additional monies, we are able to hire additional people,’ she said.”
