The Shot And A Shave: Inside A COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic At A Nashua Barbershop

Community health workers are engaging small business owners to host local COVID-19 vaccination clinics. These smaller clinics, like La Fama 2 Barbershop, are effective because of the strength of interpersonal relationships. At the barber shop, the atmosphere is relaxed and the owner knows the needs of his customers. To make the information and vaccines accessible to the local Latino community, the clinic held Saturday afternoon hours and community health workers were present with information in Portuguese and Spanish. It helps for friends and families to get vaccinated together, among people they trust.
