A mobile vaccine clinic was held for members of a church in Bridgeport today as part of the city's effort to vaccinate people in minority communities.
The Health Department has been partnering with churches as well as the state's health care systems to get more people vaccinated.
Members of St. Charles Borromeo Church and the parishioners received vaccinations today. 
Today's clinic was run by Hartford HealthCare Saint Vincent's Medical Center.
Last month, Hartford HealthCare hosted a vaccination clinic at Saint Vincent's Medical Center for several area pastors.
They spoke about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine before getting their shots in hope the members of their congregations would do the same.
Last week, Gov. Ned Lamont stopped by a mobile vaccination clinic at the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit.
Members of the church's congregation as well as other people from the greater Bridgeport area got their first dose.
The clinic was run by Yale New Haven Health.
Today's mobile vaccination effort at the McGivney Community Center comes as Gov. Lamont just announced the state will soon be deploying 35 mobile vaccination vans throughout the state.
There will be another mobile vaccination clinic at Saint Augustine Cathedral in Bridgeport next week.
