Holy Family Memorial, Manitowoc, 2021 Community Benefit

Por Mi Familia COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic

Holy Family Memorial, Crusaders of Justicia, Forward Latino, and the Manitowoc County Health Department hosted “POR MI FAMILIA” (FOR MY FAMILY), a COVID-19 vaccination event in Manitowoc. 
Hispanics currently comprise Wisconsin’s largest minority community and per the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, has been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. Hispanics also trail their white Wisconsin counterparts when it comes to getting vaccinated. 
While outreach efforts for this vaccination event were focused on the Hispanic community, individuals of all races and ethnicities ages 12 and older were invited to come and get their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. A second event was also scheduled to administer the second dose of vaccine. 
In all, 20 people received their first dose; 16 had their second dose and four people who had prior commitments were referred to schedule with Holy Family Memorial or another retail pharmacy on their own time.
