Youngstown City Health Commissioner Erin Bishop and Mayor Jamael Tito Brown led them through the mass vaccination clinic. DeWine was also greeted by Youngstown State University President Jim Tressel.
The group spoke to Youngstown residents about their excitement to receive the coronavirus vaccine.
DeWine also took part in a news conference with the Minority Community Vaccination Action Group of Youngstown/Mahoning County which announced a simplified process for getting vaccination appointments and the option to get a free ride to get the vaccine.
The group is focused on increasing the rate of vaccinations for Black, Hispanic and LatinX citizens by removing three key barriers: access to information, quick appointment registration and free transportation.
To get a ride to a vaccine site, people can call 330-716-2684 or 330-716-2843. To get help scheduling a vaccine appointment, call the group at 330-207-3461 or text “Need Vaccine” to 330-207-3461.
