Selma Chapter of The Links Incorporated and the Rural Health Medical Program Incorporated   worked together last weekend on COVID-19 vaccinations.

The two organizations worked hard on expanding access to COVID19 Education, Testing, and Vaccines.

The testing with the Selma Selma Chapter of The Links, Incorporated will run until Thursday.

The Rural Health Medical Program Incorporated received a $5,000 grant from the Southern Region of The Links Incorporated, Masked to Protect, Unmasked to Inform Grant.

The Grant was written by RHMPI CEO Keshee Dozier-Smith and Health & Human Services Committee Chair of the Selma Chapter of The Links Incorporated.

Smith said the goal is to provide five COVID19 Drive Thru Events to increase community access to COVID19 testing and vaccines across Dallas, Perry, Marengo, and Wilcox counties.

The times available are Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. at the Dallas County Health Center.

“It’s all in the name of improving and serving my community. I’m just fortunate that I was called to serve in this capacity,” Smith said.
