DETROIT (WXYZ) — The City of Detroit will begin knocking on doors to encourage residents to get vaccinated at area walk-in locations.
The campaign will begin on Monday, May 3. Door-knocking will take place in neighborhoods around six vaccination sites.
“We are knocking on doors because we want to get the word about our walk-in locations and make it easy for everyone to take advantage of these life-saving vaccines,” said Denise Fair, Chief Public Health Officer.
The six walk-in vaccination sites include:
- Northwest Activities Center, 18100 Meyers
- Farwell Recreation Center, 2711 East Outer Drive
- Clemente, 2631 Bagley St.
- Clark Park, 1130 Clark St.
- Samaritan Center, 5555 Conner
- Straight Gate Church, 10100 Grand River Avenue
