COVID-19 Vaccination Communications Toolkit
Each of us can contribute to educating our communities about the importance of COVID-19 vaccines. This toolkit provides resources and guidance for community-based organizations and other agencies promoting COVID-19 vaccine confidence.
Our Googe Drive folder has materials you can use at your clinics and as you work with community members and vaccine clinics. Review these resources to help build COVID-19 vaccine confidence by addressing concerns, answering questions, and having meaningful conversations.
5 Key Points to know about the COVID-19 Vaccine
Use these talking points when going out to our communities to initiate conversations. Print this postcard to have handy for when you are working with the community.
- Millions of people in the United States, including millions here in Colorado, have received COVID-19 vaccines, and these vaccines have undergone intensive safety monitoring so you can feel safe getting vaccinated.
- You may experience side effects after receiving the vaccine. Side effects are normal signs of your body building protection and usually go away in a few days.
- COVID-19 vaccines are free for every person 12 and older regardless of immigration status. No residency, identification, or insurance documentation is required.
- When you’re fully vaccinated you can feel safer when hanging out with friends and family.
- Talk to your health care provider or local clinic about the COVID-19 vaccine. And, you can always call the Tri-County Health Department to answer any concerns you have, including how to get a vaccine.
