BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- With distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine now taking place, Mayor Venezia and the Town Council will be holding a community meeting to discuss health equity and the COVID-19 vaccine. 

 

The meeting will take place virtually on February 3 at 6:30pm and guest speaker Dr. Chris Pernell will join the discussion. The Bloomfield Health Department will make a presentation about the health and efficacy of the vaccine and will be able to answer any question residents may have. 

 

“After months of waiting for a COVID-19 vaccine we are finally seeing residents get vaccinated which is outstanding news. However, many residents have not been able to sign up for the vaccine and some have reservations about receiving the vaccine,” said Mayor Venezia. “It is critical that no group is left out of getting the vaccine and that it is distributed in a fair and equitable manner. For this reason, the Council and I felt that it was important to hold this meeting for our community to answer any questions residents may still have and to invite Dr. Pernell.” 

 

Dr. Pernell is a dynamic physician leader and social change agent. In her public health practice, she focuses on health justice, community-based advocacy, and population-wide health promotion and disease prevention. A board-certified public health physician and American College of Preventive Medicine Fellow, she oversees a portfolio that includes Population Health, Strategic Planning, Community Affairs, and the Human Experience. Her role is to lead health equity and inclusion strategy in an integrated fashion across multiple business units.
