From the Municipal Housing Authority of the City of Yonkers' press release:
With vaccination rates lagging behind in many communities of color, the Municipal Housing Authority for the City of Yonkers (MHACY) has launched a campaign to allay fears and encourage its residents to get the vaccine.
As part of the campaign this week, MHACY has shared a video in English and Spanish with its residents featuring Rafaela Gonzalez-Lamos, MD, an internal medicine physician who practices at NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville and NewYork-Presbyterian Medical Group Westchester. The videos appear on the housing authority website and are being shared with residents through MHACY’s social media.
“We are grateful to Dr. Gonzalez-Lamos for this excellent video which explains very clearly why residents should not fear the vaccine and why it is important for everyone to be vaccinated if we are to get back to normal,” said Wilson Kimball, President and CEO of the Municipal Housing Authority for the City of Yonkers. “I’d like to also commend NewYork-Presbyterian for performing this public service by taking on this important issue.”
