MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Miami-Dade County workers were pounding the pavement Tuesday in Little Haiti, handing out COVID-19 vaccine information to anyone they encountered.
On the sidewalk, or through an open window, they also helped people register for a dose using QR codes.
Cathy Burgos — who also took Local 10 News around over the summer when surge teams worked to combat coronavirus spread in the community — was part of the vaccine outreach effort Tuesday.
She stopped at the home of Herbert Polite, who said the information provided could help counteract vaccine misinformation and community apprehension.
“It’s nice to see information being exchanged door-to-door,” Polite said. “This helps. This definitely helps.”
