The Center for Rapid Recovery, Inc Opens a Permanent Vaccination Site to Support their Community

April 30 16:09 2021
The Center for Rapid Recovery, a minority-focused, faith-based behavioral healthcare organization, will open as the only non-government permanent vaccination site within the Village of Hempstead.

Located at 312 Greenwich Street this would be the first distribution site with “residency” within The Village of Hempstead and directly supporting communities of Color and all surrounding residents.  It is also the first Faith-Based community organization to provide vaccinations in communities of Color continuously.  We will provide both day and evening vaccination to this diverse community of Color. 

Where and how people can sign-up for and access vaccines have direct implications for who will receive them. People living in underserved and disproportionately affected areas may face increased challenges accessing vaccines due to more limited resources available to navigate online sign-up systems, lack of transportation, and other access challenges. 

CRR is committed to ensuring individuals can access the vaccine, making sure people receive clear information that explains how and when they can obtain the vaccine, and addresses any concerns or questions they have about the vaccine is essential to pre-and post-engagement planning.  We integrate culturally competent and linguistically appropriate care in our outreach and service delivery by providing services in Creole, Spanish, and other native tongues to complete the mandated paperwork.  We will partner with other community organizations to promote vaccinations and address vaccination hesitancy in Color communities by addressing questions and concerns.  

As a respected and engaged community organization for over 25 years, we are well situated to be a leader in the fight for our community.  We are focused on being a proponent of “our vaccinations for our community.” We have incurred the cost to convert our facilities to address this pandemic with the full force and effort of our combined cultural history as shown us we can.
