Building Vaccine Confidence Information Packet
Contains information about the COVID-19 vaccines and how/where to get them.

“It is important to get the COVID vaccine to protect yourself and our community. It can feel scary because the vaccine seems so new, but it is very safe. The COVID vaccine does not have the actual virus in it so you can’t get the virus from the vaccine. It was tested in thousands of people, and by now over one billion doses have been given in the world. We know the vaccine is working because the areas where people are getting the vaccine have lower COVID infections. Please get your vaccine – it could save your life and those around you.”
-Dr. Audrey Kuang, CommUnityCare Clinic Physician
