Gov. Ned Lamont visited a pop-up vaccination clinic inside of a church in Bridgeport today as part of his campaign to get more people in minority communities vaccinated.
The governor visited the clinic at Cathedral of the Holy Spirit.
"We have some catching up to do there, but we've caught up a lot. My understanding is as of last week... 20% of the Blackand brown population has been vaccinated," Lamont says.
Yale New Haven Health stepped in to help by turning the lobby of the cathedral into a vaccination clinic today.
At least 70 members of the congregation, as well as residents from the greater Bridgeport area,received their first shot of the COVID-19 vaccine.
In addition to partnering with churches, the city has several mass vaccination sites including at Central High School and the University of Bridgeport.
Their mobile clinic effort is picking up too.
