MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Next Door, an early childhood education provider, hosted a free COVID-19 community resources fair on Saturday, Aug. 28.
The goal of the event was to educate people about the COIVD-19 vaccine and offer resources to families impacted by the pandemic.
Local leaders, including Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley, were at the event and encouraged residents to get the vaccine.
"If we want to continue to be in a place of normalcy, if we want to continue to be healthy, and as county executive, my job is to push us to be the healthiest county," Crowley said. "It is important that our community is educated and that we get this life saving vaccine."
People who got vaccinated at the event received the Pfizer vaccine, which was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
