HHS COVID-19 Community Corps
In April, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) COVID-19 Public Health Education Campaign launched the COVID-19 Community Corps, a nationwide, grassroots network of local voices and trusted community leaders to encourage COVID-19 vaccinations.
This effort will mobilize health professionals, scientists, community organizations, faith leaders, businesses, rural stakeholders, civil rights organizations, sports leagues and athletes, and people from all walks of life to become leaders within their communities to help get friends, family, and neighbors vaccinated.
OMH invites you to join the conversation by using the hashtag #VaccineReady and joining the COVID-19 Community Corps. As a Corps member, you will get resources to help build vaccine confidence in your community, including:
- Fact sheets on vaccine safety, tips on how to talk with friends and family about the importance of vaccination, and hints for planning and attending community events.
- Social media content to share with your followers.
- Regular email updates with the latest vaccine news and resources to share.
