TAKE THE PLEDGE:
BECOME A #Vaccinate4All CHAMPION


What is the #Vaccinate4All campaign?
The health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have been detrimental to Latino communities. Research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reveals that Hispanics and Latinos are 1.3 times more likely to contract COVID-19 than their non-Hispanic white counterparts, as well as 3.1 times more likely to be hospitalized from COVID-19 and 2.3 times more likely to die from COVID-19.¹ 

Despite calls for nationwide-vaccinations, many communities of color remain uncertain about vaccines and lack trust in medical institutions.

Vaccinate4All works to overcome this by arming health professionals and advocates with educational resources about the COVID-19 vaccines, in order to increase vaccination participation and accessibility among the Latino community.

What is a #Vaccinate4All Champion?

#Vaccinate4All Champions are individuals and organizations committed to providing Latinos with educational resources that encourage and increase vaccination participation. 

I’m not Hispanic, can I still be a #Vaccinate4All Champion?
Anyone committed to advocating for, supporting, and educating Latino communities about the COVID-19 vaccines can be a #Vaccinate4All Champion.
