VACCINE EQUITY

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

Our advocacy started April 2020 to make sure that Latinos were not being left behind during the response and recovery efforts of COVID-19.

In addition to advocacy, we have also modeled how response and recovery efforts should be done in our community for our community. 

Our temporary promotora program has been assisting individuals with scheduling appointments at local hospitals and clinics to show that if we reduce language and technology barriers Latinos will be vaccinated.

We have also rolled up our sleeves as an organization to model how vaccine clinics should be executed for our community. To-date, we have administered 2,209 doses in our own community clinics. 

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