01 Mar Where to Find What You Need to Know About COVID-19 Vaccines
Vaccines are a powerful tool in helping us stop the COVID-19 pandemic, helping populations build immunity against moderate or severe illness caused by COVID-19. They are an integral part of the nation’s road to recovery from the events of the past year, as marked by President Biden’s pledge for 150 million COVID-19 vaccinations (i.e., at least one shot per person) in his first 100 days in office.
The sheer number and variety of resources on the topic can be overwhelming for individuals and community organizations who are ready to steward communities through this phase of recovery from the pandemic. Recognizing these challenges, Healthcare Ready has stood up COVID-19 Vaccines: Resources for the Community page, a one-stop shop for credible resources for everyday community members. This page will be updated regularly to ensure up-to-date information on COVID-19 vaccines is available to communities who need it most.
What makes a resource trustworthy, reliable, useful?

Resources in the COVID-19 Vaccines page are compiled from verified information from trusted sources, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), as well as industry partners, such as CVS and Walgreens, and, trusted academics and fellow non-profit partners.
