Kansas City, Missouri (KCTV) — An employee of Samuel U. Rogers Health Center, east of Kansas City, visited door-to-door on Wednesday to provide information on COVID-19 vaccination.

They handed out leaflets in several areas and discussed with residents about their hesitation in getting vaccinated.

“Our biggest concern is that people are less likely to get vaccinated if they don’t trust you. This is a way to build trust,” said Catherine Wiley of Samuel U. Rogers Health Center. .. ?? Are you going to trust someone you don’t know, or are you going to trust someone who comes to your door saying we’re in your community? “

Those conversations led to 19 vaccinations on Wednesday.

A resident told KCTV5 News that he was changing his mind about vaccination.

“You can see a lot of things on social media, but is that true,” said Tierres Lawrence of Kansas City. Well, you will ask them questions and update you with information they may be useful in the long run. “

Lawrence says she plans to call the health center to talk to them.

They have another visit event on Friday.
