The largest vaccination clinic in the Des Moines area was held Saturday, March 27. It was focused on communities of “color.”
Broadlawns Medical Center and United Way put on the clinic at Corinthian Baptist Church.
Pastor Jonathan Whitfield reportedly worked the phones and spoke to gatherings in an effort to encourage people to receive the shot.
In the lead up to the clinic, you can see it was tabbed as a “vaccination clinic for people of color.”
Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds attended the clinic and heaped praise on those who organized the vaccination clinic for people of color.
SNARK ALERT: No word on when the vaccination clinic will be held focusing on just white people.
