BOSTON (CBS) – People of color have been the hardest hit during the pandemic, but many distrust the vaccines. On Friday, some local church leaders rolled up their sleeves hoping to set an example.

The rush to get the COVID 19 vaccine is now being felt behind the pulpit.

“This virus kills,” said Pastor Gerald Bell of Whittier Street Health Center.
