Increasing COVID-19 Vaccine Equity in Three Massachusetts Communities

Through the CDC-funded COVID-19 Vaccine Confidence Network project, the HPRC has partnered with grassroots community-based organizations (CBOs) in three Massachusetts cities (Lynn, Brockton, and Springfield) to improve vaccine access, knowledge, and positive norms. Our collaboration with community organizers and leaders drives the types of vaccine outreach and strategies we help to implement and support.
