In Photos: Augusta University health vaccinates local church leaders

In an effort to help encourage COVID-19 vaccination in Augusta’s underserved and minority communities, Augusta University Health has partnered with local churches and the Georgia Department of Public Health to provide greater access to COVID-19 vaccines and education through clinics at places of worship in the surrounding area.

To kick off this initiative, a number of local church leaders received their first vaccination dose Monday at Good Shepherd Baptist Church in Augusta. More information on the program can be found here.
