Proactive Vaccine Outreach Strategy: New York, Vaccine Ambassadors

Key Partners: local public health department, local Tompkins County ADRC

The ADRC in Tompkins County NY worked with the health department to plan and schedule vaccine clinics in rural and unserved communities. They also collaborated on a Vaccine Ambassadors program in May and June of 2021 to reach out to and engage Black and Indigenous People of Color. The health department hired the ambassadors, but the ADRC collectively worked with them to staff vaccine clinics and to promote the vaccine to rural and underserved communities.
