On Monday at 11:30, Monroe County Executive Adam Bello and Public Health Commissioner Dr. Michael Mendoza were joined with other health officials to give an update on the COVID-19 vaccination efforts in the Finger Lakes region.
Rochester First stated:
“On Monday, United Way of Greater Rochester announced $1 million in funding for the Finger Lakes COVID-19 Vaccination Program. Officials say the COVID-19 Vaccination Program is working to address vaccine hesitancy, equitable vaccine distribution, vaccine distribution in high-risk urban neighborhoods, and the development of navigation networks to support individuals on their vaccination journey.”
Adam Bello spoke on the updates and stated:
“The COVID-19 vaccination effort has been a massive undertaking, the largest of our lifetime. It has required incredible coordination, manpower and community support, particularly as we’ve changed our philosophy to a more neighborhood approach of distribution. Thanks to the financial support of private and non-profit partners, and the leadership of the United of Way of Greater Rochester, we’ll be able to sustain our efforts to ensure everyone who wants a COVID-19 vaccine is able to get one.”
