SMH Provides Second Vaccinations for Newtown Community

Business

SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY FEB 12, 2021

By far the most underserved community in Sarasota, Newtown is a historically medically at-risk community where 52% of the population is 200% below the poverty level and is predominantly Black and Latinx. SMH administered the first dose Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to about 400 community members age 65 and older at the SMH Newtown Internal Medicine practice on Jan. 13. Because of transportation and technological challenges, we partnered with Newtown community and church leaders to personally call and schedule the appointments for those 65 and older. The first and second dose vaccines were administered by newly graduated physicians completing their residency training with Florida State University at Sarasota Memorial and its Newtown practice.
