Community Health Network and the 317 Ryders motorcycle clubs are coming together to host a vaccine clinic in honor of Juan “DJ Whip” Pyle.
He’s the former president of the 317 Ryders motorcycle club who passed away from COVID-19 before being vaccinated.
William Giles of the 317 Ryders motorcycle club and Nieasha Richardson, Nurse Practitioner for Community Health Network, joined us today to share details about this event. Here’s more from them:
The vaccine clinic is happening October 2 from 2pm to 5pm at Just Wing’N It (7834 N. Michigan Road).
Community Health Network is committed to enhancing the health and well-being of the communities it serves.
In an effort to reach high-risk populations, and to provide access, Community has taken ‘pop-up’ vaccination clinics into communities.
317 Ryders motorcycle club lost its former president to COVID-19 just this past month. He was not vaccinated. Although hesitant at first until a vaccine was FDA approved, Juan “DJ Whip” Pyle became ill and died before he was able to get the vaccine post FDA approval.
To honor him, and to encourage others to get vaccinated and save lives, 317 is partnering with Community for a vaccine clinic at the local restaurant where the group regularly meets.
317 has a Foundation, founded by the former president, which aims to raise money and awareness for various community issues and organizations.

Much of the Latinx population has been hesitant to get vaccinated, according to Brandon Yohn, DO, family physician, at the Community Health Network. He joined us today to share what’s been preventing some people in that community from getting vaccinated, where people can go to get vaccinated soon and more.
