“I am encouraging people who have not been vaccinated to because we are seeing the cases of a new wave of Covid variant know as Delta variant,” according to Executive Director Hassan Omar.

“We should be able to share the information. The center has been able to host over 700 people. It is open to all Americans and residents in this neighborhood, and we are grateful to the Columbus Public Health for designating our place as one of the centers for vaccination.”
