Nueces County, Texas — Now that teens are vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine, the municipal public health district is trying to step up its support efforts.
The goal of the health district is to reach out not only to these teens, but also to those who have not yet been vaccinated.
According to Health Director Annette Rodriguez, its resilience also allowed those children to be carriers of the virus and asymptomatic.
While children are a major focus of vaccine recruitment, so is another segment of the South Texas population. There are also those names. “SVI” is an acronym for a member of the “Social Vulnerability Index”.
The city of San Antonio has launched an enhanced outreach with Texas artists such as singers Little Joe and Simply Rain.
Rodriguez adds that the district is also seeking help from local church groups. She says you will see more happen in the next few days and weeks.
