COVID-19 Vaccine Toolkit

Better For It

It will take all of us to bring this pandemic under control, and we invite you to download our resources to help spread the word in your community.

Many Americans are still deciding if they will get the COVID-19 vaccine.  We are proud to partner with The Center for Black Health & Equity to provide a science-based, factual guide called Better for It to help begin a conversation on how to make a well-informed decision about COVID-19 vaccination.  

Use Better For It as a supplement to your own research on the vaccines and to: 

  • Start a dialogue with your friends, physician, pastor and family members.
  • Share accurate information on social media.
  • Get to know the contributions of African American scientists and public health advocates who are helping to bring this pandemic to an end.

Become a Vaccine Ambassador

Vaccine receptivity is influenced by many factors, but none stronger than the influence of your family, friends and neighbors. We invite you to become a Vaccine Ambassador in your community, by sharing your personal reasons for getting vaccinated.

Immunizations have long been a topic of hesitancy in the Black community. Our national spokesperson, Dr. Cedric “Jamie” Rutland, addresses the negative history of vaccine research in the Black community and the importance of receiving COVID-19 vaccinations.
