Repairers of the Breach team up with mobile clinic to vaccinate the homeless
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The push to get people vaccinated often requires them to sign-up on a website or at least make an appointment on the phone.
For those dealing with homelessness, neither of those may be available.
Repairers of the Breach is teaming up with a mobile vaccination clinic to help get shots in the arms for those people on Wednesday, April 7.It requires no appointment or identification.
"You generally need a phone in order to make (an appointment)," Physician Assistant Josh Knox said. "You generally need at least on the site for the Wisconsin Center, you need to provide an email. Many of our members do not have either to do that, so I think that alone is a big barrier."
Adults 18-years-old and older can simply show up tog et a dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, which only requires one dose.
The center will be at the Breach Resource Center in Milwaukee from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
