Cities in Action: Cities Using Partnerships to Increase Vaccination Distribution and Equity
Problem: COVID-19 vaccine distribution has fallen short of equitably reaching communities of color and residents most at-risk of contracting the virus.
Solution: Vital partnerships between cities and health departments are vital to provide accurate information, to expand access points for vaccine administration and to build public confidence.
Outcome: On average, the U.S. is delivering 1 million vaccine doses per day, new infection rates are falling as are COVID-19 related deaths. However, the nation has not reached the level of 80-95% immunization to achieve herd immunity.
