To increase equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines in Flint and Genesee County, the Greater Flint Health Coalition has created a partnership with Genesee Community Health Center, the Genesee County Community Action Resource Department’s (GCCARD) Meet Up and Eat Up program, and the United Way of Genesee County to provide neighborhood-based COVID-19 vaccine opportunities for residents.
Residents should look for two mobile units – GCCARD’s Meet Up and Eat Up truck and Genesee Community Health Center’s mobile outreach van – traveling within greater Flint area neighborhoods typically between the hours of 12:00 noon and 3:00 p.m. on select weekdays or Saturdays. The multi-agency outreach team involved in the effort will include nurses and outreach workers that are able to provide education about the safety and effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines as well as a COVID-19 vaccine access on the spot. Both Johnson & Johnson and Pfizer vaccines will be available. Greater Flint Health Coalition community health workers from Genesee CHAP (Community Health Access Program) will also be present to connect residents to other community resources and support services if needed.
