PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It’s the first day of May and officials are launching a new May Day Challenge to get people in Philadelphia vaccinated. Pennsylvania Sen. Vincent Hughes and Congressman Dwight Evans announced a partnership with Spectrum Health Services to help achieve the goal in West Philadelphia.

Officials want to combat hesitancy and any transportation hurdles to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Next up for Sen. Hughes’s May Day Challenge is increasing vaccine services in North Philadelphia.
