Resiliency & Immunity

COVID-19 Vaccine Toolkit

A guide for families and individuals to explore concerns, answer questions, and start a conversation about vaccination.

Developed in partnership with members of the American Indian community, the Better For It toolkit shares fact-based information to spark conversations in your community.

Use Better For It to help you seek out the best information for making personal, familial and community health decisions and to:

  • Become a Vaccine Ambassador.
  • Supplement to your own research on the vaccines.
  • Start a dialogue with your family, friends, physician, traditional healer, and community members.
  • Get to know the contributions of scientists and public health advocates who are helping to bring this pandemic to an end.

Becoming a Vaccine Ambassador

The most influential voices are often those closest to you: elders, mentors, healers and family. As a Vaccine Ambassador in your community, here are a few ways you can help.
