Thanks to many of you who joined us last night for a virtual call with Dr. Vivek Murthy, Andy Slavitt, and Mina Hsiang. It was an important conversation on our work to get America vaccinated using our new tools. If you missed the event, no worries – you can watch it here.
As we work to vaccinate more people and reach those who may still be deciding whether or when to get vaccinated, we want to make the process as convenient and easy on them as possible.
Access to a vaccine should not be an obstacle for someone to get vaccinated. Here are three vaccine tools to bring to your communities right now:
- Visit vaccines.gov (English) or vacunas.gov (Spanish) to search and find a vaccine near you.
- Text GETVAX (438829) for English or VACUNA (822862) for Spanish to receive three vaccine sites on your phone within seconds.
- Call the National COVID-19 Vaccination Assistance Hotline at 1-800-232-0233 for those who prefer to get information via phone call.
Use these tools as resources for any conversations you’re having with patients, friends, or even family members. You can also remind them that many pharmacies and other vaccination sites are now offering walk-in appointments and that vaccinations are free of cost and do not require ID.
Our goal is for 70% of American adults to receive at least one dose of the vaccine by July 4th. Your leadership is helping this light at the end of the tunnel grow brighter and brighter.
