VACCINE EQUITY

Voces Unidas is committed to ensuring that Latinos have equitable access to the vaccine. 

Our promotora program is assisting individuals who now qualify for the vaccine to schedule appointments with local hospitals and clinics so that they can get their vaccine quicker. 

We are also rolling up our sleeves as an organization to offer free vaccine clinics in our valleys, in partnership with the Governor's Vaccine Equity Team, Colorado Department of Public Health, and local partners. These strategic clinics will ensure more access points for Latinos who are being left behind unintentionally by traditional health care systems. See calendar more more info. 

Voces Unidas has also launched a Spanish radio campaign to promote vaccine safety and increase Latino participation in the vaccination program.
