Lewis Metropolitan CME Church sponsors a free clinic on Saturday, October 30, offering Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines as well as booster shots.
According to Pastor Travis A. Morris and First Lady Garnica L. Morris, the clinic will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the church, which is located at 4900 S. Western Avenue in Los Angeles. Staff from the California Public Health Department will administer the inoculations to all qualifying individuals from age 12 and above.
“The COVID-19 virus has taken too many lives and the Black and Brown community has not stepped up to accept that this virus must be taken seriously. The vaccination shot is the way to avoid dying from this virus that has taken too many lives around the world,” said Pastor Morris.
“We invite all unvaccinated people to take advantage of our clinic and obtain protection against dire consequences of death by COVID-19,” he added. Supporters include County Supervisor Holly Mitchell, Assemblymember Reginald Byron Jones-Sawyer and Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson.
