Migrant workers receive J&J COVID-19 vaccine in Immokalee

IMMOKALEE, Fla. – The lines were packed Saturday in the Winn Dixie Plaza and hundreds of migrant workers got the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine in Immokalee.

“I’m feeling really good,” said farm worker Jose Luis Acosta Zepeda. “I feel better that we have that defense now against the coronavirus.”

In addition, due to their working and living conditions, farmworkers are at increased risk of COVID-19 exposure.

The Healthcare Network held a free Johnson & Johnson vaccine clinic in Immokalee for workers and their families.

“Having more vaccines especially having a single shot for a certain population is critical so as soon as we could, we got together to put this together,” said Corin DeChirico, chief medical officer HealthCare Network.

With the help of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, the HealthCare Network were able to administer 600 vaccinations.

“It’s important to reduce the risk and community spread,” said Dr. Emily Ptaszek with Healthcare Network. “To do this before they leave town because then you’re actually reducing the risk in the next community as well.”
