On Saturday, March 27, 2021, Chatham Literacy staff, Leslie Ocampo and Vicki Newell, volunteered with the COVID-19 vaccination clinic held at St. Julia’s Church in Siler City. Before COVID-19 began last March, Chatham Literacy taught six ESOL classes at St. Julia’s Church.

At the clinic, 280 people were vaccinated, two of whom were Leslie and Vicki!

“Until it’s safe to again tutor in close proximity, Chatham Literacy will continue to serve adults through remote instruction on Zoom and through the use of a digital app,” stated Vicki Newell, Executive Director. “Getting vaccinated gets us that much closer to re-starting in-person tutoring!”

Thanks to the Health Department for providing a vaccination clinic at a location people frequent and feel comfortable. Hispanic Liaison also volunteered at the clinic and did a lot of the recruitment ahead of time to sign-up community members for the vaccine.

AND thanks to everyone who got their vaccination.
