Donate to our local news fund, help a nonprofit
We’re on a mission in 2022 to work on a year-long series about housing in Racine County and we need your help to fund it. For every $250 in donations that we receive, we’ll give a nonprofit one free month in advertising.
This Saturday, residents have an opportunity to receive the COVID-19 vaccine right in their own neighborhoods. After a successful pop-up vaccination clinic last weekend, the City of Racine, AMI Health, and Health Care Network have teamed up again and will be back in the community to offer a convenient option for folks to get vaccinated.
Neighborhood locations for this weekend are within Alderwoman Mollie Jones’ district. The Alderwoman will join the canvassers on Saturday to spread the word to neighborhood residents.
The pop-up clinic, which is using the city’s Mobile Voting Unit as their base, will be at the following locations on Saturday, November 6:
11:00 a.m. – 20th & Mead St
12:00 p.m. – DeKoven Ave between Mead and Racine St
1:00 p.m. – 16th & Villa St
2:00 p.m. – 16th St & College Ave|
3:00 p.m. – 17th St & Park Ave
“I survived COVID and would not wish my experience on anyone. I know many of you still have questions and concerns about the vaccines. Perhaps you are just afraid of needles! Pre-COVID, I had questions and some concerns but after being hospitalized with COVID, I was happy to get vaccinated. The thought of being that sick again is frightening. So when you see us this weekend – ask questions, someone will hold your hand if needed, but please get vaccinated.”Alderwoman Mollie Jones
