Baltimore-area church leaders, health officials say they are stepping up efforts to encourage minorities to get a vaccine

January 29, 2021

Amid suggestions that a disproportionately small number of Black people are getting the coronavirus vaccine, Maryland health officials and church and community leaders say they are heeding calls to step up their outreach efforts. “It’s difficult enough for us to encourage people to trust the science,” said Bishop Donte Hickman Sr., pastor of Southern Baptist Church in East Baltimore. “We want to develop centers and places for people to be vaccinated and mobilize people to get vaccinated. We want there to be no excuses.”
