Push for vaccinations becomes creative
SACRAMENTO – (INT) – California is becoming creative in an effort to vaccinate the state’s hard-to-reach communities against COVID-19.
A series of initiatives announced Tuesday will focus on direct appointment assistance; community outreach including neighborhood canvassing, phone banking and text banking; at-home vaccinations and transportation services; plus additional funding. Thirty-three million dollars will bring to $85.7 million to support community-based organizations.
Thirty-million vaccine doses have been given across the state. “It’s going to take some new approaches to reach those who haven’t been vaccinated yet,” said Governor Newsom Tuesday.
