North Carolina COVID-19 Response

Vaccine Equity

Vaccine Ambassadors has been working with community organizations to increase access and uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine among historically marginalized populations* that have been disproportionally impacted by the pandemic. As of November, we have facilitated, co-hosted, or participated in over 20 COVID-19 mobile vaccination events in Durham, Orange, Chatham, Moore and Duplin Counties. We will continue to work with healthcare providers and community organizations as the expanded recommendations and age groups are rolled out.

Note: If you have multiple dates, please add in Event Description below.

*Historically Marginalized Populations are defined as individuals, groups and communities that have historically and systematically been denied access to services, resources and power relationships across economic, political and cultural dimensions as a result of systemic, durable and persistent racism, discrimination and other forms of oppression.
