Henderson-Hopkins public vaccination clinic

Baltimore City residents received the Moderna vaccine at a vaccination clinic set up at Henderson-Hopkins Saturday

Henderson-Hopkins School, in partnership with Johns Hopkins Medicine and the Baltimore City Health Department, offered the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to Baltimore City residents over the age of 18 on Saturday, April 24.

The school, which is operated in partnership with the Johns Hopkins School of Education, set up a hotline where Baltimore City residents could call to quickly register for a shot without a computer. The school also sent staff members out into the community to spread awareness about the event. More than 200 residents registered for the vaccine within the first 48 hours.

"The pandemic has further exposed and exacerbated the historic inequities facing our neighbors," said Henderson-Hopkins principal Peter Kannam. "The COVID-19 vaccine is a critical step toward keeping our students, families, and community safe and moving us all forward to a better way of life."
