North Carolina COVID-19 Response

Vaccine Equity

Vaccine Ambassadors has been working with community organizations to increase access and uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine among historically marginalized populations* that have been disproportionally impacted by the pandemic. As of November, we have facilitated, co-hosted, or participated in over 30 COVID-19 mobile vaccination events in Durham, Orange, Chatham, Moore and Duplin Counties. We will continue to work with healthcare providers and community organizations as the expanded recommendations and age groups are rolled out.

How We Partner in the Community

  • Act as a liaison between those interested in hosting mobile vaccination clinics and vaccine providers, onsite testing, and community outreach services
  • Develop interventions and tools to help optimize completion of the COVID-19 series to close the gap between first and second doses
  • Provide financial support ($10-20 grocery cards) to offset costs (transportation, childcare, missed wages) to decrease barriers to vaccine access- subject to available funds
  • Maintain an easy-to-use calendar of local COVID-19 vaccine events

Note: If you have multiple dates, please add in Event Description below.

*Historically Marginalized Populations are defined as individuals, groups and communities that have historically and systematically been denied access to services, resources and power relationships across economic, political and cultural dimensions as a result of systemic, durable and persistent racism, discrimination and other forms of oppression.
