From Century to Phoenix, Activity Pressure recommends COVID-19 vaccination websites for underserved communities:

From Century to Phoenix, a nationwide task force is working to see more COVID-19 vaccinations in underserved minority communities.

The nationwide Coronavirus Vaccination Community Awareness and Engagement Taskforce, led by Flagstaff Reverend RB Holmes of the Bethel Missionary Baptist Church in Flagstaff, has identified 86 proposed vaccination sites that they believe provide more opportunities for underserved communities.

Their list includes one location in Century, six in Pensacola, and two in the Milton area. These suggested websites are:

  • 1st century-century
  • Cobb Community Center – Pensacola
  • Warrington First Baptist Church – Pensacola
  • Warrington First Baptist Church – Pensacola
  • Great Little Rock Baptist Church – Pensacola
  • Marie Young Community Center – Pensacola
  • Movement for Change / Woodland Community Center – Pensacola
  • Baghdad Recreational Facility – Milton
  • TR Jackson Elementary – Milton

The task force sent a letter to Governor Ron DeSantis attempting to work with the state on vaccinations, but the governor’s office has yet to respond.

Of the 1,894,209 people who received the COVID vaccine in Florida on February 4, 1,208,993 are white and 65,116 are black, according to the Florida Department of Health.

In Escambia County, 26,213 residents have received at least the first dose of the vaccine. Of these, 11,202 were white and 2,281 were black.
