Nashville, TN (WTVF) — Nashville is hosting a virtual town hall today as part of a campaign to increase vaccinations in the color community.

The virtual event will be hosted by Deputy Mayor Brenda Haywood, Congressman Harold Love Jr., and Dr. Joanna Shaw Kaikai, along with the Metro Public Health Service. Click here for information on how to participate in the zoom..

The point is to sort out what is true and what is not about vaccines. That way, people can better understand the importance of vaccination.

“Our mission is to educate, empower and build trust in people of color in our community in relation to the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccination,” said Brenda Haywood. The mayor says.

For example, the health sector wants people to know that it is a myth that vaccines somehow alter DNA.

a few weeks ago, Mayor John Cooper has announced a city-wide campaign to increase the number of vaccinations in the color community. During the COVID briefing, Dr. Shaw-Kai Kai also said the campaign included a mobile vaccination team going out to the community. This is especially important when Metro enters Phase 1c. This includes the underlying health team.
