Act Now to help our communities become vaccinated!

There is a large supply of vaccines across California and Nevada and yet many people are not willing to get vaccinated. The COVID-19 Task Force of the California Department of Health is working to get COVID vaccinations into as many arms as possible, especially as the state prepares to open on June 15. Nevada is also working to vaccinate as many people as possible and we can be a part of helping both states grow the number of people who are protected against the virus.

Many people are hesitant to receive the vaccine because of misinformation  and/or historical mistrust with the US medical system and healthcare providers. As faith leaders across California and Nevada you have the trust of your community through years of ministry and are in a position to help people understand the importance of becoming vaccinated, dispel the many myths around the vaccine hazards and even offer your church buildings as locations for temporary or pop-up vaccine clinics.
