State Rep. Geraldo Reyes (D – Waterbury) told News 8, “We are here today at Todos Los Santos, All Saints Church in Waterbury, with an intentional target of making sure that the undocumented population gets vaccinated. We want to dispel and kill all myths that people and communities of color — Blacks, African-Americans, and Hispanics — do not want to get vaccinated.”

People ages 18 and up were welcome to get the vaccine at the clinic.

Follow up appointments will be provided for the second Moderna dose.
