Miami’s NAACP has partnered with CVS Health to include primarily black areas

Miami Gardens, Florida – When the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine began, Daniela Pierre said CVS Health was initially unable to include the predominantly black community in South Florida.

Pierre, Miami’s NAACP branch manager, said Friday a new partnership with CVS Health is rolling out to change that.

“Access is very important,” Pierre said.

This is because President Joe Biden’s administration announced on Friday that Florida would receive $ 13 million in early May as part of a $ 1.7 billion investment to combat the coronavirus pandemic.

Availability and convenience are not the only issues. The Johnson & Johnson blood clot problem raises the level of distrust.

According to the Florida Department of Health, more than 510,000 blacks are vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine in Florida.
