COVID-19 Vaccine Champions
Connect with our COVID-19 Vaccine Champions Program for your next event or meeting. We will provide free, evidence-based, culturally and linguistically appropriate COVID-19 vaccines and testing information and resources.
The program offers a range of COVID-19 specific education, individual/group support, motivational interviewing, and navigation services designed to meet the needs of multiple audiences. We welcome all community members, organizations, agencies, and businesses to reach out to us to support your work in reducing the spread of the virus.
The Champions are fully trained, community-based bilingual health promotion specialists. Champions attend events, meetings, etc. and will be available to:
- Discuss and support community members as they make decisions about testing and getting vaccinated
- Provide formal presentations and educational materials about the virus to event leaders, coordinators, and guests
- Hold listening and motivational interviewing sessions with individuals or groups
- Answer questions about the virus including options for testing and vaccination
Note: Vaccine Champions do not offer medical or legal advice or provide door to door canvassing
