As vaccines have become more widely available, we have entered a new stage of our fight against COVID-19. Public health professionals and trusted community organizations alike are busy trying to vaccinate everyone eligible under state/federal guidelines. At the same time, as they work to reach the largest and broadest possible population, they are also attempting to prioritize vaccine access for the most vulnerable citizens – low-income people, people of color, people with disabilities, immigrants/ undocumented residents, and others who face economic, social or practical barriers to successful COVID vaccinations.
Join us for this panel discussion as we explore what funders need to know about where our region stands with respect to vaccination progress and, in particular, ensuring equitable access.
