ABERDEEN, Miss. (WTVA) - The Northeast Mississippi Coalition Against Covid-19 is on a mission to make sure people in North Mississippi are vaccinated.
On Saturday, Coalition members set up several mobile sites around town to get people vaccinated.
"If you were in Aberdeen today you had many opportunities," Dr. Vernon Rayford said. "And it's really incredible that there are so many opportunities for vaccines, particularly on a Saturday.”
The city of Aberdeen hosted multiple groups to get people vaccinated including the Coalition. It was the first time the Coalition hosted a site in Aberdeen since starting in April.
Even if people missed out on the event, the group shared information on Facebook live about getting vaccinated.
"We've gotten a chance to talk to people, engage with people and ask them what their concerns and hesitation are about the vaccine and address many of those," Dr.Rayford said.
Just down the road from the Coalition's mobile site, Walgreen's staff set up outside of Daniel Missionary Baptist church to also vaccinate the community.
"We believe it is important to get it to the community," Bill Griffth said. "If you give it to one body of people, other people will know and maybe they will join in."
The Northeast Mississippi Coalition Against Covid-19 will return to Aberdeen on June 4 at the Parks and Recreation building.
