Beginning August 7, we’re launching a Back to School Week of Action alongside the Department of Health and Human Services’ We Can Do This campaign to kick off the school year focused on school-based vaccination drives for students, their families, and their communities. Despite vaccination progress, we’re seeing disproportionately lower vaccination rates among young people 12 and older, and even lower vaccination rates among young people of color. As the Delta variant drives increases in both hospitalizations and deaths from COVID-19 among the unvaccinated, now is the time for a national effort to get young people vaccinated.
Take action today to increase COVID-19 vaccine access and have meaningful person-to-person conversations to get young people vaccinated.
