Health equity and vaccines

We know that—for many people, particularly people of color—there is a historic mistrust of the health care system. As a result, there is significant skepticism about the COVID-19 vaccine. Because education will be key to restoring and, in some instances, establishing trust and faith in medical science; we’ve developed a resource page to learn more about the COVID vaccine and health equity.

We hope this information will be helpful as you decide what’s best for you and your family.

Resources and education

We know that you may get questions from family, friends or neighbors about the COVID vaccine and its safety and efficacy. Below, please find links to several resources intended to address common questions and concerns, plus give you the information you need to be an ambassador for the vaccine. We encourage you to share this information with others.
