COVID-19 Vaccine Equity and Access Initiative

COVID-19 Vaccine Equity and Access Initiative

The Center for Behavioral and Addiction Medicine (CBAM) funded by the California Community Fund (CCF) are leading a COVID-19 vaccine equity and access project in collaboration with various community partners and service providers in South Los Angeles.

The project features a series of virtual COVID-19 summits to provide the necessary resources to increase broader education, awareness, and equity around the COVID-19 vaccines. Please read below for more information regarding the series of events which feature the event recordings and resources.

The aims of the vaccine accessibility project are to:

  • FACILITATE (community, public, private, and governmental partnerships to reduce COVID-19 vaccine inequity);
  • EDUCATE (communities of color in South LA about the COVID-19 vaccines through virtual town halls); and
  • NAVIGATE (communities of color in South LA on how to access COVID-19 vaccines).
