Milwaukee’s vaccine outreach program goes door-to-door to get people vaccinated – VIDEO

Sharing is Caring!

Mobilizers target underserved communities

People file off the bus hitting the streets, door-to-door, delivering information about the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine, and if people are willing, even the vaccine itself.

“I’ve been a part of seven people being vaccinated,” vaccine mobilizer Marcus Austin said.

Mobilizers like Austin are primarily targeting neighborhoods with low vaccination rates — neighborhoods Austin and others here call home.

“It’s almost overwhelming because I’m contributing to something that’s bigger than me. It’s bigger than the community,” Austin said.

Eddie Oliver is homebound, and was unable to get vaccinated until mobilizers arrived at his doorstep, followed by health department vaccinators with the shot he had been hoping to get.

“Everyone should get one,” Oliver said.

“Would you have gotten the shot if they had not come to your door?” WISN 12 News reporter Kent Wainscott said.

“No,” he said.
