The clinic is being offered by the Edna Martin Christian Center, Community Health East, and KIPP Indy Public Schools. As you know, the Indiana Region of the American Red Cross is encouraging vaccinations and providing materials for people to learn about the need and the facts about the vaccines. A recent study of vaccine hesitancy in the Black and Latinx communities showed only 14 percent of Black and 34 percent of Latinx respondents mostly or completely trust the vaccine. The mortality rates due to this virus impacts these communities disproportionately.
