01292020HAO 0261HARVEY – State Senator Napoleon Harris, III (D-Harvey) announced Family Christian Center will serve as a COVID-19 vaccination site for Harvey and surrounding south side communities. 

“The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted disadvantaged communities, which is why it’s vital that communities like Harvey have access to the vaccine,” Harris said. “Family Christian Health Center already provides so much support to the Southland, and I’m glad they will now be able to provide vaccinations to community members who need it the most.”

Family Christian Center is located at 31 W. 155th St. in Harvey and will serve eligible residents in Phases 1A and 1B, such as health care personnel, first responders, front-line essential workers, and residents 65 and older.

The state will provide the site with approximately 300-500 vaccine doses per week, in addition to the allocated doses the state distributes to existing health care partners, like local health departments and pharmacies.
