The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has created a COVID-19 Vaccination Communication Toolkit for Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) to help build confidence in this important new vaccine.
This toolkit is intended for social service organizations, faith-based organizations, YMCAs/YWCAs, fraternities, school organizations, meal delivery services and senior centers. The toolkit can be used to help educate community members about COVID-19 vaccines, raise awareness about the benefits of vaccination and address common questions and concerns. It contains a variety of free resources including:
- Key messages
- Educational slide deck
- Frequently Asked Questions
- Newsletter content
- Plain language vaccine factsheet (available in several different languages)
- Template letter for Community Based Organizations
- Social media messages
- Vaccination sticker templates
Partners are encouraged to adapt the key messages to the language, tone and format that will resonate with your communities.
