Vaccine Outreach & Engagement
In partnership with funding from the Alexandria Health Department (AHD), ACT for Alexandria awarded $145,657 in grants to Community Partners to assist with COVID-19 vaccine education and outreach support across communities in Alexandria. The Sleeves Up, ALX program activities operated for five months: November 2021 to March 2022.
This investment in outreach to specific populations was necessary as language, literacy and technology barriers posed a challenge for many community members to understanding the benefits of the vaccine, accessing and navigating the appointment system, or learning about walk-in opportunities. This grant program supported organizations that have existing trusted relationships with Alexandrians to ensure communities understood the benefits and safety of COVID-19 vaccines and had the tools to receive the vaccine available throughout the community.
