Campaign: Support Vaccine Equity
Sign-on letter to share your support for greater vaccine equity
COVID-19 has had a disproportionate impact on communities of color. Yet despite promises to prioritize equity in the state’s vaccine rollout, nearly half of people vaccinated in NYC are white.
Here’s how NY can help vulnerable NYers access the vaccine. If you are a member of a community group or organization, please consider signing on and sending in a letter of support for the following community advocacy letter
We believe that to ensure the vaccine gets to communities who need it most, NY must:
Develop an effective phone intake option
Ensure staff at vaccine hubs speak the languages prevalent in their neighborhoods
Engage community health centers as partners
