Dozens obtain COVID-19 vaccine at Toledo church


TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – More and more Lucas County residents are rolling up their sleeves for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Dozens more received their first dose on Sunday at the First Church of God in Toledo.

The church leaders we spoke to say they want to educate the community about the vaccine and why they believe getting a COVID-19 shot is important. The First Church of God has reached out to the people in the neighborhood – especially underserved minorities.

The church also works with ProMedica and the V Project to run vaccination clinics – like a Sunday at their church in Collingwood. 100 people were vaccinated in this clinic.

“We wanted to cover the central core and ensure that people can come to this place everywhere,” says church administrator Juanita Greene. “It was a tremendous effort.”

The next vaccination clinic is February 21, 2021. 200 vaccines will be available. To make an appointment, call the Church at 419-255-0097. 200.

The first church of God located at 3016 Collingwood Blvd. in Toledo.
