The Movement Puts More Shots in Arms

Tina Butts and The Movement held another vaccine clinic on Saturday, May 8 at Pathway from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and brought along ProMedica staffers and the Moderna vaccine for the benefit of about 200 walk in patients – most of them for the first dose.

Volunteers and patients were greeted in the Pathway parking lot with music by The Mix and food by the Off The Rails food truck.

The turnout, mostly walk-ins, was light considering previous such community events since so many have now received the vaccines. Butts noted that 72 percent of residents in the cities zip codes The Movement has been reaching out to, have been fully vaccinated.

However, so many people in this and other communities have not yet received the vaccine because it has not been as convenient as possible – certainly one of the obstacles Tina Butts and The Movement are striving to overcome.
