California Partners with Nearly 200 Places of Worship to Ramp Up Equity-Centered Outreach

Sacramento, CA...With expanded eligibility and 50 percent of Californians age 16 and older now having at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, Governor Gavin Newsom today announced partnerships with nearly 200 faith-based organizations to expand the state’s vaccine outreach and equity efforts. The Administration is leading an effort to provide at least 25,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses to pop-up clinics at these locations in the hardest-hit areas of the state, recognizing the important role places of worship have in helping to address their members’ COVID-19 vaccine concerns and providing educational resources. Combined with the doses that have been administered through mobile clinics, the total number of doses administered to places of worship to date is more than 38,000.





“Our partnerships with community-based organizations and faith leaders are the reason why folks throughout California, no matter what zip code they live in, have access to vaccines – especially in those communities hardest hit by this pandemic,” said Governor Newsom. “We moved quickly to allocate 40 percent of our vaccine supply for those communities most impacted by this pandemic, and we’ll continue to lean on these community-based partnerships to further educate Californians about the safety and efficacy of vaccines.”

Over 24 million doses have been administered in California, with 5 million doses administered in the hardest hit communities. The Governor’s initiative builds on work by the Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) to help administer more than 13,500 doses across 15 mobile clinics at churches in Los Angeles and Oakland, in partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This is in addition to the work being done by local health jurisdictions to set up vaccination clinics at these sites.

“Extremely proud to live in a state and have a Governor who prioritizes trusted voices in the Black faith community to save lives through ensuring that there is COVID-19 vaccine equity and access,” said Executive Director of C.O.P.E. & New Life Christian Church Pastor Samuel J. Casey. “Congregations Organized for Prophetic Engagement (C.O.P.E.), Inland Empire Concerned African American Churches (IECAAC), in partnership with Loma Linda University and now the State, are working collectively to put actions with our faith in stomping out COVID.”

To date, 13 pop-up clinics at places of worship have operated in April in the Inland Empire, San Diego, Bay Area, Central Valley and Los Angeles. Additional sites are planned for the rest of the month.

Several pop-up clinics have received funding through the Together Toward Health Initiative, a $29.4 million public-private partnership with Public Health Institute. The partnership has supported more than 180 local, community-rooted organizations across California whose members serve as trusted experts for COVID-19 education, testing and vaccination access in their communities.

“Our congregation is honored to partner with the state on making vaccines more accessible to our community,” said St. Mark Parish Administrator Reverend Rubén Morales. “During this pandemic, we’ve provided food distributions to keep our neighbors fed—we’re thankful for support to build on this work with life-saving vaccinations to protect our members and the community of Richmond.”

In addition, as part of the broader COVID-19 harm mitigation campaign, the state is engaging in community specific faith-based initiatives to reach Black, Asian American and Pacific Islander and Latino communities of faith respectively. All efforts will reach nearly 200 places of worship throughout the state with critical information on COVID-19 vaccines. Outreach will happen through webinars, faith leader testimonials, townhalls, email blasts and other engagement to build confidence in vaccines and mobilize Californians to get vaccinated.

All Californians aged 16 and up are now eligible for vaccination. Residents can visit MyTurn.ca.gov or VaccinateALL58.com, or call (833) 422-4255 to sign up for notifications and schedule an appointment if eligible.

- WHO states that PCR Covid tests generated millions of false-positive results.

- MN lawmakers say Covid-19 death totals inflated by 40% or more following review of state death records.

- Johns-Hopkins study showed no increased population death totals despite allegedly large numbers of Covid-19 dead.

- CDC Covid-19 death totals are based in part on a vague and speculative “Probable Deaths” category.

- Rockefeller University epidemiologist says many Flu cases are reported as Covid cases, hence a large recent drop in reported Flu cases.

- CDC data showed 94% of Covid-19 dead may have died for other reasons.

          Maybe you should watch Tucker Carlson and find out what he really said instead of listening to CNN.

        Why would you give thanks to a hypocrite? Oh that's because you're one too.
        So now after the supreme court (5th time) told newsom that he could shove his churchy hypocrisy up his ass he's partnered with them?
        He's such an A whole. I hope when we get to recall his governor 👑 we get a leader who will have a business background WITH common sense. You do not spend money you do not have. If chit head newsom ran his businesses like he has the state of CA, he'd be bankrupt.

Just talked to some lady in Modesto from the above site about being a foster parent to some little wetbacks being held at our border in cages. She said as long as we or anyone in our home has never been convicted of a felony, we were probably candidates. They'll pay us and I want to get two girls, about 11 to 14 or so. $800- $850 a month, A Piece! Two girls, who can hold their own, all we do is dress'em, school them, teach them stuff. I love cooking so maybe they do too? Man think about it, save 2 young girls from a cage, give them a good home, clean clothes, buy them some clothes, they'd do anything to stay in America the land of opportunities. And get paid? Sweet deal.
