On Wednesday, March 31, Community Builders of Kansas City hosted a vaccination event at the Kansas City Zoo for Missouri residents.
Swope Health teamed up with Truman Medical Centers, Children’s Mercy Hospital, the UMKC School of Medicine and the University of Kansas Medical Center to deliver nearly 2,000 vaccinations.
Community partners joined in to provide services, including Harvesters, Happy Bottoms Diapers, the Kansas City Public Library and Catholic Charities.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill was there, too, helping Harvesters distribute food to families in need. U.S. Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver II, a co-sponsor, and Jackson County Executive Frank White were also present in support of the effort.
