Corner Health Center

Juneteenth Vaccinations

Attendees to a vaccine event held on Juneteenth

The Corner Health Center offers health care and supportive services for young people transitioning to adulthood in Ypsilanti, Michigan. During a Juneteenth celebration, the Center hosted a talk by a well-known pediatrician who spoke about health in communities of color, persuading skeptical friends, families, and young people to be vaccinated. One mother attending the talk appreciated the presentation, but shared with staff that she felt defeated in trying to convince her hesitant family to be vaccinated. The staff shared resources with her, including handouts the Center created to take back to her family.
