Let us know what you think about vaccine hesitancy and how can make things better.
The truth about the Tuskegee Experiment, and other inhumane experiments, is one of the reasons we’re joining museums around the nation in the #CommunitiesForImmunity project. We know that distrust and misinformation have caused many to not get vaccinated. It’s important that we all learn the truth about COVID and how being vaccinated can slow the spread of this virus. Being vaccinated and wearing masks are our best defense against COVID-19.
Through the Communities for Immunity project, the National Civil Rights Museum is sharing important messages on the seriousness of COVID and getting vaccinated. It will share a survey to gauge community response and encourage each of us to do our part.
Communities for Immunity builds on a number of earlier and ongoing efforts to activate engagement in vaccine confidence work, including Vaccines & US, led by the Smithsonian and in collaboration with a range of partner organizations and individuals; Vaccinate with Confidence from the CDC; We Can Do This from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; and the It’s Up to You campaign led by the Ad Council and COVID Collaborative.
Communities for Immunity is made possible with funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. For more information, visit www.communitiesforimmunity.org.
