Vaccines offered Tuesday at JSU beginning at 10 a.m.
JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - The push continues to get more people vaccinated against COVID-19 at Jackson State University Tuesday.
The university is holding another vaccination event compliments of the State Department of Health and the Jackson-Hinds Comprehensive Health Center.
Students, faculty, and the area residents can get the COVID-19 vaccine.
The Centers for Disease Control says minorities have been more likely to have serious complications with COVID-19, but a number of studies say they are far less likely to get a vaccine.
University leaders say the goal is to service the African American community.
State health leaders are offering 300 doses of the Moderna vaccine available at no cost on a first-come, first-served basis.
The vaccine is available at JSU inside the Lee E Williams Athletic Center from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
