Massachusetts COVID19 Vaccine Education and Outreach
We are writing to you in hopes that you will assist our efforts to increase trust and confidence in COVID-19 vaccine in the Commonwealth. Your participation is critical to helping provide people with clear, accurate, consistent information about the vaccine, build trust and vaccine confidence, and dispel vaccine misinformation.
Below is a toolkit of educational and outreach materials, an invitation to a webinar to describe how to access and use these materials, and scripts for a “selfie” video project. We hope you will accept this invitation to help increase vaccination in our communities. Thank you in advance for your assistance!
The available COVID-19 vaccines are approved and recommended by the FDA and the CDC following standard testing and approval processes.
By prioritizing resources and efforts, the vaccines were developed quickly but never at the expense of safety.
The COVID-19 vaccine is being administered free of charge by the federal government. You will not be charged. If you do not have insurance, you are still eligible to receive the vaccine free of charge.
To learn when it is your turn to get the vaccine, you may be contacted by your employer, place of residence, or primary care practice. You can also check www.mass.gov/covidvaccine for updates or any action you might need to take.
Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is our best chance to stop the pandemic.
In the meantime, the combination of getting vaccinated, wearing a mask, social distancing, and avoiding groups will offer you the best protection.
