CDS #10 provides vaccines to Housing Authority residents

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- On Tuesday, CDS #10 and State Street Baptist Church partnered together to provide the COVID-19 vaccines to residents of the Housing Authority of Bowling Green. 

Twenty people were vaccinated with the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine. 

People had to make a reservation to reserve their vaccine in between the hours of 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. 

Reggie Jackson, a deacon at the church, said people were excited to get the shot.

He said the church wants to do everything they can to get the vaccine to people who want it.

“Number one thing is I’m excited. Because for so long, it’s been like it’s a death toll. But now it seems like we have a little light at the end of the tunnel like everybody says. So I’m so happy we’re able to be a part of that process to get people healthy and to get that shot out to them,” said deacon Reggie Jackson. 

“I’m elated. I’m just glad that I took that step to protect myself and others. I really am happy that I had it done,” said Joyce Parrish, who was vaccinated. 

Jackson said that they hope to have another event for the Housing Authority soon to get more people vaccinated, but don’t have an exact date yet.
