"Yvonka Hall, a healthcare worker who leads the Northeast Ohio Black Health Coalition (NEOBHC), and the Rev. Lisa Maxine Goods, the pastor of Shiloh Baptist Church, share a common goal: getting their neighbors vaccinated. 

To that end, they’ve been hosting vaccination clinics. Hall, in partnership with MetroHealth and Drug Mart, has vaccinated more than 120 Clevelanders in three two-hour clinics in the past three months. Greater Cleveland Congregations (GCC), which Goods is a part of, has vaccinated more than 4,000 Clevelanders over the last year."
