ENSURING EQUITABLE ACCESS AND USE OF COVID-19 VACCINES.

Trust The Facts!

Communities of color are at higher risk for a more severe impact if they contract COVID-19. 

    • Communities of color generally have more underlying health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma, COPD, and other illnesses. (Source: CDC)
    • Health, social and economic inequities have placed minorities at greater risk for severe cases of COVID-19. (Source: CDC)

Be mindful of these things when making a decision about whether or not to get vaccinated. You or your loved ones may be at risk!

The vaccine is safe and effective at helping to prevent serious complications or death from COVID-19.

We’re not out of the woods yet; COVID-19 is still active. However, we can continue to limit the spread and protect those who are most at risk of severe illness by getting vaccinated.

Getting vaccinated is the first step to reducing the risk of contracting a deadly case of COVID.

MYTH: COVID-19 is Just the flu!

FACT: COVID-19 and the flu are not the same, they are caused by different viruses.
