COVID-19

ALG’s vaccine clinic was a huge success


More than 350 people received the first of two doses of the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine during a clinic April 17 co-hosted by the African Leadership Group and the Colorado Department of Pubic Health and Environment at ALG’s Aurora offices.

Thanks to a large number of volunteers from both organizations, the clinic ran smoothly and efficiently, from temperature checks at the front door to check-in to helping people find where to go, to administering the shots to handing out food boxes donated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to newly vaccinated people as they left the site.

“I am very pleased that we are able to offer this important service to our community and to the community at large,” said ALG Founder and Executive Director Papa Dia, as he watched over the proceedings Saturday morning. “The State of Colorado has been a great partner in this clinic, and our volunteers have been wonderful.”

Also involved and deserving our heartfelt thanks: Spectrum Accountable Care, Favorite Healthcare, Insight Global, Concentric, and the Colorado Black Health Collaborative.

Everyone who got a first dose Saturday will receive an email invitation from CDPHE to register again for their 2nd dose, pick a time slot, and answer the health questions again. Moderna is a two-shot vaccine, and the two doses are administered four weeks apart.
