Minority Health Month
April is Minority Health Month, and the Office of Minority Health is raising awareness with #VaccineReady. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted racial and ethnic minority communities in Connecticut and across the United States and there is an increased need for vulnerable communities to get vaccinated as more vaccines become available. Bringing an end to the pandemic and getting families, communities and schools back together is the goal.
The #VaccineReady campaign will help communities practice COVID-19 safety measures, get the facts about COVID-19 vaccines, share accurate vaccine information, participate in clinical trials, and get vaccinated when the time comes. The campaign will also increase vaccine confidence by dispelling myths and misconceptions about the vaccines through our #VaccineReady video series featuring trusted minority healthcare professionals and experts.
