Grosse Pointe Farms — Two Metro Detroit churches and a community health center are teaming up for a COVID-19 vaccination effort aimed at members of the LGBTQ community, their family and friends.

Tonya Calhoun and Artisha Dupree fill out paperwork while waiting to get their COVID-19 Moderna vaccinations at a vaccination event at Grosse Pointe Congregational Church for Michigan's LGBTQ community members, friends and family in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan, on March 18, 2021.

The appointment-only service is being offered at Grosse Pointe Congregational Church in conjunction with Whosoever Ministry United Church of Christ and Detroit Community Health Connection.

The Rev. Selma Massey, pastor of Whosoever Ministry, said the vaccination campaign is an effort to reach an underserved, often neglected population.

Health Connection staff administered doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine during the clinic's first session Thursday at Grosse Pointe Congregational.

The clinic continues next week. To request an appointment, email info@gpcong.org or drselmamassey@gmail.com.
