KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A church in southeastern Kansas City, Missouri, has been selected as a site for targeted COVID-19 vaccination events.

Morning Star Baptist Church, 2411 East 27th St., was named in a presentation Wednesday from the state Department of Health and Senior Services.

Gov. Mike Parson announced the targeted vaccination teams during a press briefing last month. Four National Guard members are expected to be assigned to each of the four teams – two in Kansas City and two in St. Louis.

The goal, according to Parson, is to partner with clergy members “to assist the most vulnerable populations.”

St. Louis Urban League was selected for the St. Louis events.
