Mayor Bowser is seeking at least
51 Pastors/Faith Leaders from the Ward 7 and 8 faith community to
encourage Ward 7 and 8 residents to go as soon as possible to the Dorothy Height/Benning Road
Library in Ward 7 to get the Pfizer or Johnson and
Johnson vaccine, or to Anacostia
High School in Ward 8 for the Pfizer vaccine. A
small stipend will be provided for each “Vaccine Influencer.” The
specific amount of the stipend will be determined by the total number
of faith leaders who participate.
The Mayor is seeking to get as many people vaccinated at the Dorothy Height
Library and Anacostia High Schoolby August 21.
As the Mayor’s office has been advertising, each person who receives a
vaccine at either of those sites by August 21 will receive a $51 gift
card. Anyone in the DMV (including Pastors/Faith Leaders) who brings DC
residents to get vaccinated will also receive a $51 gift card for each
person that meets them at the vaccine site (up to 11 people—each person
must get the vaccine).
You may begin immediately
referring people to the two vaccination sites mentioned above and sign
up to be a Vaccine Influencer. If others from
your congregation/organization are also willing to serve as a Vaccine
Influencer, please have them register separately. Click https://forms.gle/6oBYuYAvdqokEDnT9 to
sign up as a Vaccine Influencer and provide your name, e-mail,
telephone number, church/ organization, and Ward. Separately, we
are also seeking to determine who is scheduled or planning to host your
own vaccine clinics. Please use the link above to share that
information as well.
This is the information we have from the Mayor’s office at this time.
We will provide more details as they become available. There will also
be an opportunity to discuss the initiative at a joint online Ward 7
and 8 meeting this Saturday, August 14 at 10 am. You will receive a
separate invitation to that meeting
