Tallahassee organizations plan immunization awareness programs
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) – Keisha Brown, who heads Brain Building Consulting, is taking a big step forward in the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines.
“We’re just trying to mitigate the spread of COVID,” Brown said.
Brain Building Consulting works with daycares to formulate the best learning plans for the centers they work with.
Now they will work with these daycares to provide vaccines and information to parents who pick up their children at the end of the day.
For centers that participate, Brown says there will be incentives.
“The incentives are monetary,” Brown said. “Each center will be offered a monetary donation to the center for billing school supplies.”
Each center could receive up to $ 300.
The money from Brain Building is part of a $ 50,000 outreach grant from the Tallahassee-Leon County Coronavirus Vaccination Education and Community Engagement Working Group that was awarded to 10 organizations.
Also using the money, ALARM International Church, they say instead of handing out vaccines, they will give vaccine information at one of Florida A&M’s football hatchbacks.
Kevin Alford of ALARM International says they are focusing on minority communities who may be more hesitant to receive the vaccine.
“It is important that we not only take leadership in spiritual matters, but also in matters that deal with a person’s daily life,” said Peters.
With COVID-19 cases declining statewide, organizations hope their work to distribute the vaccine and fight disinformation will help save lives across the state and country.
“And that is why it is important and vital that we are that face and that voice in the community.”
