Vaccination Event Brings Community Together

Four staff members of the Piedmont Triad Regional Council who partnered with DRNC on this event stand next to their booth, all wearing black polos and blue jeans, smiling from behind their masks. They all have two thumbs up. From left to right, a Black woman, older white man, a blond-haired woman and a white middle-aged woman.

DRNC was in Stokes County this month for vaccination drives as part of Project ACCESS, DRNC’s initiative to increase access to vaccinations. The first drive-through event, in Danbury, gave out nearly 80 vaccinations with the support of many local partners, and a second is scheduled in King.
