A COVID-19 Vaccine Campaign for Black Communities

A COVID-19 Vaccine Toolkit for Black Communities

FIND A COVID-19 VACCINE NEAR YOU

Being part of a high-risk population for COVID-19 infection does not mean that you are powerless to protect yourself from becoming infected. By choosing to get vaccinated, you are choosing to protect yourself, your family, your friends, and your community from COVID-19.


Committed and invested community members like you are needed to act as trusted ambassadors.
