Over the next few months, the National Guard will focus on outreach to the Black community to build trust in the vaccine, as well as streamlining how it is administered to the community as a whole.
To inform the community about the importance of taking the COVID-19 vaccine, Major General Ondra Berry says there needs to be stronger collaboration between public and private agencies.
He wants everyone to understand where they need to go, when to go and how to receive their second dose.
As the state works to vaccinate each tier, Major General Berry is reminding the community that it will take everyone to stop the spread of the virus.
While here in Southern Nevada we remain on Tier 1, which is healthcare workers and nursing homes, Tier 2 could begin by end of the month.
