Despite being one of the most vulnerable groups in society – often suffering multiple chronic health conditions – the homeless were overlooked in the federal government’s vaccine rollout plan.
Giving COVID-19 vaccinations to the homeless
Today, The Rev. Bill Crews Foundation will step in ensuring their homeless and vulnerable guests receive their first Pfizer shots.
“It’s taken me months to secure these vaccines for the homeless and rough sleepers who we care for. So from today I will be able to rest a little easier knowing they are on the road to protection from the virus”
Rev. Bill Crews, CEO and founder of The Rev. Bill Crews Foundation
