As Jasmine Tolbert received updates on Wednesday, she happily relayed the incoming numbers to her mom in texts.

Tolbert, the president of the NAACP Vancouver branch, was getting updates on a COVID-19 vaccination clinic at PeaceHealth Southwest Urgent Care in Vancouver.

The vaccine clinic took place this week and focused on inoculating Black, Latino/Hispanic and Pacific Islander community members who fall into Washington’s current eligibility for vaccination.
