CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Casper Housing Authority and the Wyoming HUD Office hosted their first vaccine block party Friday afternoon.

Health Care for the Homeless join the festivities and offered free Covid vaccines. Community members celebrated receiving their vaccines with a BBQ, bounce houses, and games.

Casper Housing Authority says this event allows the community to come together and look towards the future.

“Our office was shut down for 51 weeks. So we really weren’t able to get out and see the people that we serve. And so we’re excited to be in the public. We’re excited to be able to bring people together. We know that the future’s a little bit uncertain, but we know that this is Wyoming...and we can do it,” said Kim Summerall-Wright, the executive director of Casper Housing Authority.

Casper Housing Authority and the Wyoming HUD Office are working to have more events like this in the future.
